Wednesday Lenten Program

Lent is the period of the liturgical year from Ash Wednesday leading up to Easter. The traditional purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer –  through prayer,  fasting, serving and self-denial.  During Lent, we will gather as a church for mid-week Lenten soup suppers, followed by a worship service.  Every Wednesday night we will gather for fellowship and soup at 6:15 pm, and then worship together at 7:15 pm.  Please note that you do not have to come for dinner to attend the service.  At the Ash Wednesday service there will be the Imposition of Ashes and Holy Communion.

This year we will be focusing on the video preaching series called He Chose the Nails, by Max Lucado—a best-selling Christian author and writer and preacher at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas.  Here’s the description from the book:  In this five-session video Bible study, Max Lucado explores the many gifts that Christ provided to us at his crucifixion.  These include not only the gift of the cross but also the gift of the thorns that pierced his brow.  The nails that tore his flesh.  The seamless robe that he removed for us.  The empty tomb where he forever defeated sin and death.  Every gift of God reveals his love, but no gift reveals his love more than the gifts of the cross.
