The season of Lent is upon us. These six weeks of preparation provide us the opportunity for repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline. The purpose is to set aside time for reflection on the life, suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. We will have a special worship service designed to remind us of our own humanity and the fact that we are created from ashes and we will return to ashes without the intervention of Jesus. As a reminder of our own mortality and our need for repentance, we will each receive the mark of the ashes. Our Ash Wednesday service will begin at 7:00 on March 5.
On each Wednesday that follows, we will have the opportunity to study and discuss the great statement of Moravian faith- the Easter Morning Liturgy. This study will help us to prepare to join in the Easter Morning Liturgy with a new understanding of what we mean when we speak those beautiful words. The topics each Wednesday are:
March 12- God the Father and the Lord’s Prayer
March 19-God the Son and our Salvation
March 26-God the Holy Spirit
April 2- The Communion of Saints and the Church
April 9- The Resurrection of the Dead and the Life to Come
Join us each week for a Fellowship Meal at 5:45 and for our study and discussion beginning at 6:30. Children’s program and nursery will be provided.
