Dinner at 6, followed by worship at 6:45 in the Chapel

Lent is the period of time leading up to Easter that for centuries has been a time of self-reflection for Christians—a time to realign priorities, renew commitment, and draw closer to the God who has redeemed us in Christ. Join us for worship as we begin the season of Lent with the imposition of ashes—a symbol of our sin and our mortality—so that we can celebrate with joy on Easter the good news that both our sin and our mortality have been overcome in Christ.

10:00 am in the Sanctuary

Nursery care available.

Sunday School for children and youth takes place during worship, beginning after the Children's Sermon. All children and youth are invited to participate in worship up to that point, after which they are welcome to go to Sunday school or to remain in worship with their family.

Join us for coffee and fellowship after the service in the Fellowship Hall.

The Sacrament of the Lord's Supper is celebrated on the first Sunday of every month.

What is the Lord's Supper?

The Lord’s Supper enacts and seals what the Word proclaims: God’s sustaining grace offered to all people. The Lord’s Supper is at once God’s gift of grace, God’s means of grace, and God’s call to respond to that grace. Through the Lord’s Supper, Jesus Christ nourishes us in righteousness, faithfulness, and discipleship. Through the Lord’s Supper, the Holy Spirit renews the Church in its identity and sends the Church to mission in the world.

When we gather at the Lord’s Supper the Spirit draws us into Christ’s presence and unites with the Church in every time and place. We join with all the faithful in heaven and on earth in offering thanksgiving to the triune God. We reaffirm the promises of our baptism and recommit ourselves to love and serve God, one another, and our neighbors in the world.

Who can partake?

The opportunity to eat and drink with Christ is not a right bestowed upon the worthy, but a privilege given to the undeserving who come in faith, repentance, and love. All who come to the table are offered the bread and cup, regardless of their age or understanding.
