Lent, the 40 days leading to Easter Sunday, starts on February 14 with Ash Wednesday. Here are some events to look forward to.
Lenten Study will begin on Wednesday, February 7, at 5:30pm. We’ll be using a DVD and book by Pastor Adam Hamilton entitled 24 Hours that Changed the World, an in-depth study of what Jesus experienced in the 24 hours before he was crucified. Please let Dennis Bischke know as soon
as possible if you’re interested in being a part of this study so he can have enough materials for
Ash Wednesday Service on Wednesday, February 14, at 6:00pm. This is a somber, reflective service to get us ready for the Lenten season. As always, we’ll offer the imposition of ashes at the beginning of worship. We use ashes to remind us that we will all die; that through Jesus’ resurrection, we will also be resurrected; and that Jesus cleanses us from our sins (ash used is used in making soap).
Confirmation Pancake Breakfast on Sunday, February 11, directly after worship. This is an
annual event that helps the confirmation class raise money for their retreat to Lutherdale Bible
Camp in March.
