Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
We have been enjoying a long Season after the Epiphany this year. The last Sunday after Epiphany, which is the Transfiguration of Our Lord, is March 6. Three days later, we begin the 40-day long holy Season of Lent on Ash Wednesday (March 9).
For Christians, Lent marks a time or repentant reflection. While the life of the believer is marked by daily sorrow over sin, repentance, and faith in Jesus, Lent is a time especially set aside for us to consider these things as we prepare to celebrate our Lord’s Passion—His suffering, death, and resurrection.
One of the additional opportunities that we have to do this is through our midweek Lenten worship. Our theme this year is “Miracles of Lent.” We will look at the important and significant miracles and events that God the Father performed to set apart His Son’s death from all others. To enable folks who may not be able to come to the evening service to make use of these worship opportunities, we will have a service at 1:00 p.m. each Wednesday in Lent, as well as our evening 7:30 p.m. service. I hope this will be a benefit and blessing to you.
May our Savior Jesus richly bless you during your Lenten walk with Him to the cross of Good Friday and the empty tomb of Easter!
