Here comes Lent, and the Savior in the Psalms!  This yearly 40 day journey of reflection and contemplation enables us to pause and reflect on our sins, our need for a Savior, and the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Throughout the six Wednesdays of Lent this year (Feb 14 – March 21), I invite you to join with your church family in worship as we look to the book of Psalms to answer questions like these:

  • Is Jesus there in the Psalms?
  • Did Jesus pray the Psalms?
  • How does praying the Psalms strengthen us to follow the words of the Savior, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” Luke 9:23

Ash Wednesday… Would you like to have the Imposition of Ashes to start your day on Ash Wednesday? All are welcome for a short(10-15 minutes) time of Confession, Scripture, and the imposition of ashes, beginning at 7:00 am Ash Wednesday, Feb. 14th.  Full Ash Wednesday worship with the Imposition of Ashes and Communion is at 7:00 pm.

Daily Reading of the Psalms…As our Lenten journey begins I encourage you to spend some time each day in contemplative reflection, reading through all 150 of the Psalms, together with your church family, over these 40 days.  Bookmarks with all 40 days of Psalms readings are available on the table in the Narthex.  Look also for your daily email, beginning Feb. 14th, with the Psalm reading, prayer and hymn verse.
