Lenten Activities

Lent is a period of solemn religious observance, a time of prayer and study as we prepare ourselves for the death and Resurrection of Jesus.

Our Lenten activities include:

  • Lenten Suppers and Study – Starts Wednesday, February 21st at 5:30 and continues for the next five Wednesdays. “Cracking the Shell of Whiteness” is our study topic this year and will be facilitated by Lyn and John Clark Pegg and others. This will be an interactive reflection/discussion group for people who are interested in being effective allies with people of color in the work of dismantling racism and undoing white privilege. A supper of soup and bread will be served at 5:30 and the discussion will be from 6-7:00 p.m.
  • Palm Sunday Service of Triumphal Entry March 25th, 10 am
    Our Sanctuary will be abuzz with activity in anticipation of the Triumphal Entry of the young preacher of Galilee for what will become the Week of Passion in the Christian Church. The theme for the service will center around how the cheers of entry quickly turn into the jeers of the crowd. We will witness the bright and hopeful expectations and get a glimpse of how they can become a stark reminder of the Passion.
  • Maundy Thursday Service – March 29th, 7 pm
    We observe the most solemn of all services of the Christian Year, featuring our Chancel Choir and a Choral Reading. The choral reading of “The St. Mark Passion”, in eight scenes, will take participants, as well as the audience, from the Triumphal Entry to the Passover Meal and on to the Trial and eventual Crucifixion. At the conclusion, worshipers will leave in the silence of despair to ponder the finality of the events of Holy Week. In this way, we will effectively commemorate both the events of Maundy Thursday as well as Good Friday.
  • Service of Resurrection – April 1st, 10 am
    Join us to celebrate the Resurrection of Our Lord. Along with special music and lots of excitement we celebrate the empty tomb outside Jerusalem.
