LENTEN WORSHIP SERVICES will be every Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. during Lent. We will utilize the popular liturgy “Unfailing Light – An Evening Setting with Holy Communion” by Marty Haugen & Susan Briehl. The reflections are based on Jesus’ five “I Am” statements from the Gospel of John, and will be led by Maynard Atik, John Gienapp & Paul Eldred. Pastor Tim will officiate the service.
DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME starts on Sunday, March 11. Don’t forget to Spring Ahead!
THE ELIZABETH GREGORY HOME ANNUAL SPRING DINNER will be on Sunday, March 18, 6:00 p.m. at the St. Demetrios Hall (2100 Boyer Ave East). This dinner plays a critical role in helping EGH build and sustain a sturdy financial base, which in turn allows them to provide a welcoming refuge to homeless and at-risk women that fosters their core values of RICE: Respect, Inclusion, Community and Empathy.
ON MAUNDY THURSDAY, MARCH 29, we will gather at 6:30 p.m. for a simple meal and to re-enact Jesus’ final meal with his disciples, including the sharing of the bread and the cup that has become our sacrament of Holy Communion. Using the complied readings from all four gospels, we will get a composite picture of what this evening was like and will bring Jesus’ interactions and instructions to life through these readings.
ON GOOD FRIDAY, MARCH 30 we will gather at 7:30 p.m. for our traditional Tenebrae Worship Service as the choir leads us through an evening of choral reflection on the suffering and death of Jesus while passages of Jesus’ passion and death are read aloud and the lights of the sanctuary are slowly dimmed before the Christ candle is removed from the sanctuary.
ON SATURDAY, MARCH 31, OUR ORGANIST, LOGAN HAMILTON, will have an organ concert in the sanctuary starting at 7:30 p.m. The program will include music by Felix Mendelssohn, Johann Sebastian Bach, Anton Heiler, Johannes Brahms & Louis Vierne. Logan is offering this evening of music “to reflect upon Christ’s suffering and the gift of salvation that we gained from it.”
