Tuesday, March 10, 2015

The journey through Lent continues in March.  This is a time for reflection and prayer; a time to make decisions about how best to share ourselves and our faith with those around us.  Examining what we have and what we can give to others is one of the best ways we have of making our world a better place.

Please join us each Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. for worship.  Each service will have time for confession and reflections.  There will be time to here God's Word of the past and listen for God's Word of the present.

Our mid-week Lenten Series will feature Rev. Becky David, a life-coach and spiritual director.  She will help us focus on the life we can choose for ourselves.  These services will be held on Wednesday evenings during March at 7:00 p.m. Please feel free to join us.

Maunday Thursday, April 2, at
7: 00 p.m.  there will be a communion service followed by our Tenebrae Service.  We will gather to remember Jesus' Last Supper and then hear the Scriptures recount the events following.  This service, also known as the Service of Shadows, will be marked with the extinguishing of candles and silent reflection.  Join us for this

Lent 2015

The image above is a reproduction of the cover of the Lenten Devotional book produced by the Still Speaking Writers Group of the United Church of Christ.  There are a few copies available for personal use at the church.  Please feel free to take a copy with you.

Lent is a time of soul-searching and reviewing out life in relationship to our faith.  Lent calls us to a time of repentance and reflection as we see ourselves in light of who God has called us to be.  Please plan to join us each Sunday during Lent at 9:30 a.m. as we seek ways to both examine our living and then put into practice our faith.  Each Sunday service will have a time for confession and renewal as well as a call to action in our living out of our days.  

Special Lenten services will be held on Wednesdays, March 11, March 18, and March 25 with featured guest speaker The Rev. Ms. Becky Davis.  Our liturgy will give time for reflection and the message will focus on economic justice in our lives.  Join us on those three Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m.

Thursday, April 2 will be our Maundy Thursday service at 7:00 p.m..  Communion will be celebrated and a service of remembrance of the movement from light to dark as we prepared for the events of Good Friday and Jesus on the Cross.
