The Lenten Journey

This is a season of reflection and meditation where we cleanse our hearts and minds as we journey towards the cross.  It is a time to think about your relationship with God and seek new way to renew that relationship which is central to who we are as people of faith.

This year instead of giving something up for lent as many of you may do, maybe this year try adding something – ten minutes each morning of journaling, making one call to a friend each day or reading a psalm each evening.  I’d like to encourage everyone to find a daily faith practice and add it to your routine.  Adding something new to your day is a way to honor and remember Jesus’ sacrifice.  As you do this practice each day reflect on how you are connecting with God.  Drawing nearer to God, this is the heart of the lenten season.

Join us each Wednesday evening during lent for a soup dinner at 6:15 followed by a lenten bible study at 7:15.

Holy Week, April 1st through 8th -We enter Holy Week with Palm and Passion Sunday.  During our 10 am worship we’ll move from the triumphant entry into Jerusalem to the communion table and betray that follows.  Maundy Thursday we will share a feast and tell the story of the Last Super at 6:30.  Good Friday worship will be hosted at Arlington Church of the Brethren with our ecumenical partners.  Join us stand with all the saints before us at the cross of Jesus.  Easter Sunday we will gather at 10 am to experience the joy and new life that comes on Easter morning.
