The EPIC (Engaging People In Christ) youth group will lead our Good Friday service on March 29 at 7:00 pm. This somber service allows us to hear the story through scripture and song. While the text is familiar, the Holy Spirit will open the words to fresh meaning. Make time in Holy Week to follow Jesus.
The Prayer Team is setting up a prayer room in the Library for prayer leading up to Easter. There will be some prayer stations to provide suggestions and assistance for prayer needs. You may wish to pray for our community, our church or your personal requests. Hours are Good Friday (March 29) from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm and Saturday (March 30) from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. Come and take advantage of this quiet time.
It’s time to pull out your purple, green and gold to celebrate Mardi Gras Sunday before the Lenten season begins. On Sunday, February 10, we will celebrate God with music, song and dance. While the 8:00 am service will remain a traditional service, the 9:45 and 11:15 am services will feature the music from the Mardi Gras Band. We will sing the old favorites, “Just A Closer Walk With Thee” and “When The Saints Come Marching In”. It’s a time to celebrate before the reflective time of Lent, so join us with your beads, your purple, green and gold clothing, and you excitement to worship God in a slightly different way.
We enter the Lenten season with a special time of individual reflection on Wednesday, February 13 from 6:00—8:00 pm in the Sanctuary. We will have the labyrinth set up with various stations around the sanctuary with readings and opportunities to begin your reflective time of Lent. This year’s Lenten theme is about wandering and searching for God. The sanctuary will be open from 6:00 to 8:00 pm for each person to take as much time as they wish to wander through the labyrinth. For those who would like it, Josh Rath will be on hand to impose the ashes from the palm.
This Saturday night at 5pm we have worship service, if your calendar is open please come join us. We would love to worship with you. We are also looking for two people to help with childcare, if interested please contact the office and let us know. Thank you!
