Lent: A Season of the Soul, a Time for Renewal
The forty day journey toward Easter begins March 5, Ash Wednesday. It is time in our church for spiritual renewal.
Sunday Lenten Devotional Books will be distributed to all families. These are provided at no cost by the church because of how important we feel a time of daily prayer and reflection is in a healthy spiritual life. These books will be at the doors as you leave worship.
The one special thing we are doing through the season is a Lenten Evening Prayer service to be held Thursday evening at 7 beginning March 6th. These services will be about one half hour in length and are designed to be a quiet time for guided reflection and prayer combining music, scripture and quiet to provide you with a special time with God. These services are open to anyone that needs a “spiritual break, a time of quiet and reflection, of renewal and empowerment.” You should leave refresh spiritually and physically.
Looking ahead to Holy Week we will again be hosting a joint Good Friday Service presented by St. John’s Episcopal and First Christian. Like last year this will be a multi-sensory presentation of the events of Good Friday as well as reflections on how our lives intersect with those who were at the cross. Time for this service is not yet set.
Also make plans to be a part of our 11th annual Good Friday Prayer Vigil during which you get the sanctuary to yourself for an hour of prayer and reflection. The one hour time blocks begin at 9 PM Friday and run through 7 AM Easter morning. Registration for those time slots will begin March 16th
