Ash Wednesday – Lenten Services and Simple Suppers
Midweek during Lent – Simple Supper and Prayer. This year Ash Wednesday shares the date with Valentine’s Day. It’s an admittedly awkward combination. You can at least bring your Valentine to supper before we gather in solemn observance of this day of repentance! Starting on Feb 14, we will gather each Wednesday of Lent for a Simple Supper, 5:30-6:30 PM, followed by a time of prayer beginning at 7:00 PM. On Ash Wednesday it will be a service of Holy Communion with confession and imposition of ashes. Through the remainder of Lent our Wednesday prayer will follow the setting of Holden Evening Prayer. Readings from the Vigil of Easter will provide the scriptural focus. These readings from the Hebrew Scriptures tell the story of salvation that points finally to Jesus’ own passion and resurrection.
Lenten Simple Suppers Each Wednesday evening will begin with a Simple Supper serving from 5:30 pm until 6:30 pm. Several groups have volunteered to be responsible for one of the Simple Suppers. Thank you. Here’s the schedule so far (cuisine to be determined):
February 14 – Ash Wednesday, Education Ministry Team
February 21 – Trinity Youth
February 28 – Stewardship/Finance – Tacos
March 7 – Caring Ministry Team
March 14 – Youth
March 21 – Congregational Life Ministry Team – Chili
Come and enjoy food and fellowship each Wednesday evening at 5:30 before 7:00 worship service.
