Seasonal Worship Services
February 28th 6 PM
On this Fat Tuesday night, we will prepare our bodies and souls to walk the Lenten Journey path, by garnering strength as we pray for God to heal us and make us whole. Then we may more honestly reflect on our humanness during Lent. We begin our night with a pot-luck meal in celebration before our Lenten fast. In preparation for Ash Wednesday we will make ashes by burning our palm branches .
March 1st 7 PM
”Remember you are dust and to dust you shall return.” We begin the season of Lent...the season of reflection, self-scrutiny, and preparation for redemption. On this night we accept that mark of mourning and repentance.
Palm/ Passion Sunday
April 9th - Services began at 10:00 AM
Enter the gates of Jerusalem with Jesus. We enthusiastically follow Jesus with shouts of Hosanna’s. However, we quickly sense the emotions shift as we begin to face his passion.
April 9th - 6 PM
What we are celebrating is the wondrous salvation our God brought to pass more than 3000 years ago when he delivered us from the bondage in Egypt? This festival is more than just a remembrance (even as the Lord’s Supper, instituted on Passover night, is not JUST a “remembrance,” but also a participation in the events we commemorate. It is a way for us to claim the story of liberation and salvation as our own…to not let it just rest in the past with our ancestors of faith. We will retell the Passover story using traditional signs and symbols that have helped the Children of God remember the events and meaning of our Exodus. These experiences will help you to discover for yourself some of the deeper meanings and mysteries
April 13th 7 PM
On this evening we gather to
remember the command Jesus gives us, “to love one another.” God’s love is experienced in the final meal Jesus shares with his disciples. God calls us to experience this same love in the first meal of God’s kingdom.
April 14th 7:00pm—Tenenbrae
As the evening draws to a close, the final events of Jesus life casts a shadow of darkness. The act of extinguishing candles symbolizes the impending darkness that enfolds creation culminating in Jesus crucifixion.
Wednesday Evening Preayer
March 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th, April 5th 6 PM
You are invited for a weekly simple meal of soup and bread followed by a hands –on prayer worship service. It is an opportunity to pray and engage in spiritual preparation to more fully follow Jesus to where he beckons. Here you may seek what is missing in your life...to seek forgiveness and restoration.. You may walk the sands of the wilderness and contemplate the footprints you have left behind. You may handle bread dough and ponder your hunger for God.
Perhaps you will be led to gaze into a piece of artwork and reflect on your relationship to the composition. Or the spiritual act of walking the labyrinth may call you to encounter the divine.
Death does not have the final say. The cold stone tomb could not stop life. This is the power of love found in the resurrection. The sober reflection of Lent culminates with the crucifixion of Jesus. Then quietly on this morning the new light reveals a fresh start and a pure
freedom. All are invited to celebrate with profound joy!
Easter Service starts at 10 AM
