Join us during Lent
Have you ever misplaced your phone–which is on vibrate of course–and then asked someone to call it? We get very still and really quiet. Our ears perk up in all directions in order to be ready to hear that little buzz. It is a quieting down and high alert all at the same time. This Lent we will quiet things down and heighten our attention to the “still, small voice” of God and our own True Self. Listening through prayer as well as meditation on holy texts is an ancient Lenten practice. Come and listen.
I invite you to join us for our Lenten Sermon Series “LISTEN” which will run through March 25th.
Our topics in our spiritual journey through Lent will be:
Finding Your Cave: Listening Spaces – 2/18/18
Finding Your Breath: Listening to our Bodies -2/25/18
Finding a Word: Listening to the Texts – 3/4/18
Finding Your Power: Listening for Healing – 3/11/18
Finding Your Mystic: Listening Beyond the Voices – 3/18/18
Finding Your Purpose: Listening to Your Heart – Palm Sunday – 3/25/18
Our Series will culminate with our Holy Week Services,
On Maundy Thursday at 7:00 pm join us as we “Listen for the Promise” in Jesus’s words to his disciples. We will gather in an intimate representation of the upper room to share the breaking of bread and giving of the cup in Holy Communion. As United Methodist everyone is invited to participate in our Holy Communion. Age or membership is no restriction of the grace of God offered in this sacrament.
On Good Friday at 7:00 pm we will gather in somber remembrance to “Listen for the Sacrifice” in powerful text and moving sounds of the price Jesus paid because he loves you.
After Listening during Lent and Holy Week we will gather on Easter Sunday morning to “Claim and Proclaim” Jesus’ resurrection and His saving grace for our lives. We will welcome the Sunrise with an outdoor service in our pavilion at 6:30 am followed by breakfast in our Fellowship Hall. Everyone is welcome.
Our 8:15 and 10:45 am service will celebrate the resurrection by singing God’s praise and Holy Communion.
Hope to See You in Church
