Please join us for the biggest week of the year as we celebrate the passion and resurrection of Our Lord Jesus.
Lent 2019: The Seven Deadly Sins
Lent starts this month on Ash Wednesday (March 6th). Join us on Ash Wednesday for a light meal at 5:30pm followed by worship with the imposition of ashes at 6:30pm. Also please join us on the rest of the Wednesdays throughout Lent for a light meal and midweek Lenten worship at 5:30 and 6:30pm respectively. For the season of Lent, choir practice will move to 7:15pm Wednesday evenings after worship and Confirmation classes will run from 7:15ish to 8:30pm.
The theme for our weekday evening worship services this year is “The Seven Deadly Sins.” While all sin is deadly in the sense that it leads us away from God and makes us deserving of death, Christian tradition has long listed seven inner sins as particularly deadly--pride, envy, wrath, greed, lust, gluttony, and sloth. While some Protestants may scoff at such a list as “too Catholic,” this traditional list is actually very helpful in exploring both the depth and seriousness of our sin. In a season of self-examination and repentance, what more appropriate topic can there be, but an examination of both the depth of our sin and the depth of our hope? From Ash Wednesday through Maundy Thursday (with an introduction on Transfiguration Sunday), we will explore these seven deadly sins--What are they? How are they particularly deadly? Where can we turn for assistance in battling these inner demons? Join us for these Wednesdays this Lent as we engage this fascinating and important topic.
