Remember you are dust . . .
. . . and to dust you shall return!
Our journey through the valley of the shadow of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and continues through Holy Week, until we join in proclaiming the good news “Christ is Risen! He is Risen indeed!”
Ash Wednesday, February 17
Out of the dust we cry to you O Lord, as we contemplate anew our sinful self. Worship will include a time for the Imposition of Ashes as well as gathering around the Table of Communion.
Due to Covid-19, this service will be available in person, streamed on our Facebook Live Page, and broadcast live on 93.3 FM WTTF. For those attending in person, the imposition of Ashes and Communion will take place in your pew rather than coming to the Atlar.
Maundy Thursday, April 1
On the night of Jesus’ betrayal, we gather with the disciples in the upper room as we witness a sacred meal redefined. Rather than contemplate on the rituals of the Jewish Passover Jesus takes bread, blesses it, breaks it, and gives it to all to eat. Saying, “This is my body.” Then he lifts a cup, blesses it, and gives it to all to drink. Saying, “This is my blood, a new covenant given for the forgiveness of sin.” Remembering Jesus’ life giving sacrifice over sin and death, we gather around the same table rejoicing in the promises given and made by Christ.
Good Friday, April 2
The unthinkable has happened! The one we call friend, messiah, teacher, and lord, has been crucified on a cross. The one who has loved so much as inherited a crown of thorns and has been sentenced to a criminal’s death. Now his body remains lifeless in a borrowed tomb. Together we contemplate the glory that comes on the “Old Rugged Cross.”
