Our Lenten Journey to the cross with Christ, begins Ash Wednesday, March 1. During this season of quiet reflection and repentance, you’re invited to join us for worship on Sundays and Wednesday evenings.
Ash Wednesday worship will be held at 7 pm in the sanctuary. The Imposition of Ashes will be observed and Holy Communion will be celebrated.
Christ On Trial series gives us the chance to listen in on a courtroom session to help determine who Jesus actually is. A reader’s theatre drama with a lawyer or lawyer and witness will be offered on Ash Wednesday, Sunday morning, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter worship services.
Witnesses at the trial include: Matthew; the healed woman; Nicodemus; the adulterous woman; John; Mary Magdalene, and Simon Peter.
Wednesday evenings, as a reminder of the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, we’ll join Martin Luther in reflecting on Christ’s sacrifice for our sakes. Standing at the Cross focuses on portions of sermons Luther’s sermons preached during Lent, Holy Week and Easter in the parishes he served. These services, that begin at 7 pm in Fellowship Hall, focus on the following themes:
March 8 Standing in Prayer
March 15 Standing Unafraid
March 22 Standing in Suffering
March 29 Standing Through Persecution
April 5 Standing in Truth
Please also join us for supper at 6 pm every Wednesday evening during Lent, beginning Ash Wednesday. We hope you’ll join in this time of fellowship and worship.
