Lent 2017

Lent is here!  Maybe having an exclamation point isn’t the right way to talk about the muted season of Lent, so I’ll try that again… Lent is here.

This time of deep reflection is one of the more meaningful seasons of the church year for me.  We always begin on Ash Wednesday by thinking about our mortality and utter dependence upon God.  This year we’re gathering in Church #1 on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm for mid-week Lenten worship.

A few details:

-We’re going to be working on a congregational art project during Lent.  Maybe you’ve seen or colored pages from a coloring book.  This Lent we will have coloring pages mounted on the wall of Room 101 in the FLC.  These pages are pages from the Stations of the Cross.  While those of you with Roman Catholic roots will recognize the stations, they have been used by Christians of various traditions to mark the crucifixion of Jesus.

-We switch the liturgical music each season.  This season we’re trying a new setting of the liturgy called “Mass from Age to Age.”  It’s a great setting and here’s a preview of what we will be singing on Sundays throughout Lent.

-This Lent, we invite you to join us in Church #1 at 6:30 on Wednesday evenings for mid-week prayer.  This year we will be focusing on Martin Luther’s Small Catechism.

Please know that all are welcome!  We pray that God would richly bless you as you live out your faith!
