Wednesday Night Fellowship: Ash Wednesday Holy Communion - March 6 The forty-day season of Lent begins with Ash Wednesday. Lent is a season of preparation and self-examination as we reflect on the cross and resurrection in the weeks before Good Friday and Easter. It brings to mind Jesus' forty days in the wilderness as he prepared for his calling as a servant Messiah. We'll begin Lent this year with a 6:00 supper followed by a simple service of Holy Communion in the sanctuary at 7:00.
First Sunday in Lent Communion - March 10 The season of Lent is a forty day period of self-examination, reflection, and fasting that the Church sets apart in preparation for the celebration of the Resurrection at Easter. We pattern this season on the forty days Jesus spent in the wilderness at the very beginning of his ministry. We'll observe the beginning of this season with the celebration of Holy Communion on Sunday morning.
