Lenten Wednesday Night Suppers – Feb 21, 28 and Mar 7, 14, 21
On these evenings we will have a light supper starting at 5:45 pm to enable handbell choir members to eat before their practice time at 6:15 pm. Meals can be rather simple but we need your help. There is a sign-up on the atrium bulletin board and we hope you will consider helping with at least one meal of the five. Join with others, a group, friends, committees, to come up with a simple meal. We will also need the Trinity Kitchen Group to help with clean up on these evenings.
Lent Midweek Worship – Feb 21, 28, Mar 7, 14, 21
During our Lenten journey together this year, we are planning on doing things a little different. Our overall theme for Lent is “God’s Story. Our Lives.” Each week when we gather for midweek Lenten worship at 7:00 PM, we will be examining the connection between the biblical narrative and the stories of our lives that come together in God’s story of enduring love. During worship, people will share their personal stories as they relate to a particular theme for the evening, and we will encounter the different ways the Bible speaks to that theme. Our five weekly themes as we journey through Lent together are “Burned” on February 21, “Broken” on February 28, “Stained” on March 7, “Washed” on March 14, and “Promised” on March 21. We invite you to journey with us through scripture and story as we prepare for Holy Week and Easter. As with previous years, we will also hold a brief service of communion that will include a rite of healing and anointing at noon each Wednesday.
A Lenten Journey: Biblical Stations of the Cross
12 Noon on Fridays – Feb 16, 23; March 2, 9, 16, and 23
Lent is a reflective time that is guided by our lectionary, liturgy, and hymns in our worship. In our personal devotions there are many options and journeying the way of the cross is a tradition that has its earliest forms observed and recorded in the late 4th century. Please join Pastor Lorrel Strom-Jensen on Fridays during Lent at noon in the sanctuary to journey through the Biblical Stations of the Cross. Through scripture, hymns, and prayers we will follow the way of the cross and ponder the connections to this path that we experience daily in our own lives.
