Lent Worship 2018

  Lent Worship 2018  
The season of Lent starts on
Ash Wednesday, February 14th.
 
This brings special opportunities for Worship and Fellowship.
 
The general theme of all Lenten Worship Services,
both Sundays and Wednesdays, will be
“Signs of Lent.” We will examine various signs we see along the roads that tell us what to do, and how signs along the way on our Lenten journey show us the way to Christ.
 
In addition to our regular Sunday morning worship at 8:30 and 11:00, Wednesday night Lenten Dinners will be held at 6:00 pm,
with Services following dinner at 7:00 pm.
 
And, coloring posters will be back! We will continue our project started last year, featuring drawings of the Stations of the Cross.
 


Please plan to join us during Lent, as we explore these themes:

 
Ash Wednesday, February 14

"U-Turn"

In our Ash Wednesday worship, we are reminded to make a U-Turn, turning away from our sins and turning back to God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Sunday, February 18

"Speed Bumps"

After His baptism, Jesus was dumped in the desert to be tempted for 40 days before His ministry could begin. We are reminded that we too encounter speed bumps on our journey, but the Kingdom still lies ahead.

Wednesday, February 21

"Stop"

We remember how Peter tried to put a Stop sign in front of Jesus on his way to the cross. But Jesus helped him (and us) to see that he could only stop when he reached the cross to save us all.

Sunday, February 25

"Divided Highway"

We are reminded that following the ways of the world takes us down a divided highway in the opposite direction of Gods will for us.

Wednesday, February 28

"Merge"

We are reminded to merge our lives with long history of the story of salvation that began in the Garden of Eden, continued with the Children of Israel at Passover and is revealed in the sacrifice of the promised Messiah.
Sunday, March 4

"Blasting Zone Ahead"

We are reminded that the crucifixion is merely a blasting zone, clearing the way for something new and glorious.

Wednesday, March 7

"Yield"

We are reminded to yield to the Father’s will for us in our lives, just as Jesus yielded to his will when he prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane, “Not my will, but yours be done.”


Sunday, March 11

"Turn On Headlights"

 The light of Jesus is like turning on headlights for safety because we hate and are afraid of the darkness.
Wednesday, March 14

"One Way"

We are reminded that there is only One Way to God and only one name by which we can be saved. That Way and name is Jesus.
Sunday, March 18

"Detour"

We are reminded that in seeking Jesus, He instead draws us on a detour to the cross where we lose our lives in order to gain eternity.


Wednesday, March 21

"Dead End"

We are reminded that, unlike other paths in life, Jesus is not a dead end, but a start to life everlasting.

Palm Sunday, March 25

"Road Narrows"

We are reminded that wide road of palms and praises to the Son of David will narrow this week, leading directly to the pain and power of the cross of Christ.


Maundy Thursday, March 29

"Food"

We remember that we are fed and nourished in our faith journey each time we stop to partake of the very body and blood of our Lord and Savior, found in the holy food of Holy Communion’s bread and wine.

Good Friday, March 30

"Cross Road"

We see heaven and earth intersect at the Cross Road of the cross of Christ, where the sinless Son of God takes away the sins of the whole world.

Easter Sunday, April 1

"Road Work Ahead"

We celebrate that the work of our salvation is done through the resurrection of Christ from the dead. But as Jesus told the women at the empty tomb, there is road work ahead. Our job is to go and tell the Good News.
