Adult Ministry – February 2016

The season of Lent is upon us. It is a Christian season of preparation before Easter, celebrated this year on Sunday, March 27. Lent is a time dedicated for reflection on Jesus Christ – his suffering and his sacrifice, his life, death, burial, and resurrection.

To observe Lent, a special Journey to the Cross Prayer Walk will be available to individuals, families, and groups at our church. Beginning in March, you are invited to walk through seven interactive, devotional prayer stations set up throughout the upper level of the gym. You will travel along the path Jesus walked on the way to his crucifixion. Each station includes scripture reading, interactive exercises, and prayer to help you reflect upon the sacrifice of his death, so that you might experience the grace and love of God more fully during this Lenten season.

An all-church open house format Journey to the Cross Prayer Walk & Breakfast has been set for Saturday morning, March 12 from 8:30 – 10:00am. During March, additional times will be available for guided and self-guided walks for individuals and groups. Please check your church mailbox soon for the corresponding devotional program booklet listing these times as well as other special events and services for you and your family, friends, and neighbors.

Everyone is invited to stay after the 11:00 service on Sunday, February 21 for a delicious dinner prepared and served by our high schoolers! Donations go toward high school mission trips and retreats. On the menu: meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and more!
