Ash Wednesday Service March 5 at 7 pm
Join us as we mark the beginning of Lent with ashes and the sharing of Communion. Each year we consider what holds us back on our journey of faith. Time is taken to write something we need to let go of. These slips of paper are burned and we are marked with ashes as a sign of our confession. We listen to God’s call to us in Matthew and are fed at Christ’s table. Forgiven and fed we can continue the journey of Lent, holding on to the hope of the resurrection and being salt and light for one another on the way.
Lenten Vespers 7 pm on Wednesdays during Lent March 12, 19, 26 and April 2
“Prayers Around the Cross” will be held again each Wednesday in Lent in the Sanctuary. This meditative worship includes quiet singing, silence, prayer and the lighting of candles. Take time each week for worship as we journey toward Easter. This service will begin on March 12 and continue each Wednesday until Easter. The liturgy lasts between 15 and 25 minutes, based on each participant’s need for silence and prayer. Youth and Confirmands will participate as part of beginning our time together. Thanks to Gudrun Witrak, Jane Rupel, Beth Bartlett and Mark Hakes for their leadership of this time of prayer.
