Several ways to participate during
this liturgical season:
1. Pick up a Lenten Spiritual Guide as you enter
the sanctuary (also available in church office & lobbies).
These brochures contain narrative and 40 days
of Scripture references from the lectionary
to guide your Lenten journey.
2. Plan to attend "Journey to Jerusalem."
Beginning on Ash Wednesday (March 5),
Raymond Bailey will be leading this Bible study
on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m.
(Join us for Fellowship Supper at 6:00pm
if you can, then stay for the study.)
3. Join us for worship services every Sunday
morning at 10:30 a.m. during Lent (beginning March 9).
Our sanctuary choir has been preparing Lenten
anthems, and each service will feature a
"Lenten Moment" led by our children & youth.
4. Observe the symbols of Lent and Easter in
A purple-draped cross and a Lenten wreath
will be prominently displayed on burlap cloth
in the sanctuary as we extinguish one candle
each Sunday in our countdown to Passion
Sunday (April 13) and then light the white candle
for Resurrection Sunday (Easter, April 20).
On Passion & Resurrection Sundays, banners
and palm leaves will adorn our podium area,
and the purple drape will be changed to white.
