Lent begins a few weeks!
Easter is on Sunday April 5, this year, with Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent on Wednesday February 18, 2015. That beginning day of Lent will be with us before we know it!
Lent is a time of spiritual preparation for us to journey to the Cross with our Savior and find the surprising blessing that are part of faithful following Jesus. In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus asked his disciples, “Can you not watch with me for one hour?” If we put this question on our hearts, what will our response be? Hopefully, a time of reflection on our lives will begin anew and our day-to-day practice of faith will reemerge with new found strength and vigor. Easter shines so much brighter when we have made the pilgrimage with Jesus to the foot of his cross.
Our worship on Ash Wednesday begins at 7:30 PM on February 18, 2015. It includes Holy Communion and the imposition of ashes.
Let the journey begin!
