Join us for our Midweek Lenten Services

  • Ash Wednesday Service with Holy Communion on February 18th
  • Church Services, Wednesdays at 10:00am & 7:00pm
  • Soup Suppers, Wednesdays at 6:00pm

We will be embarking on a series called “The Parables of Lent”. This series focuses on a biblical parable that connects to Lenten themes. Within each parable’s plot is woven a unique message about what we receive through the crucified Christ.

Parables of Lent

February 25 – Week 1
“Receive the Word: The Sower and the Seed” Matthew 13:1-8, 18-23
The seed that falls on fertile soil takes root and grows, while seeds in other soils fail. The Word of Christ flourishes within us.

March 4 – Week 2
“Receive the Treasure: The Hidden Treasure and the Priceless Pearl” Matthew 13:44-46
Two men give all that they have to buy objects of great worth. We who are priceless to Christ receive him who gave all that he had to call us his own.

March 11 – Week 3
“Receive Mercy: The Good Samaritan” Luke 10:25-37
A man beaten on the road gets help from an unlikely traveler. We who are often beaten down along the road of life encounter the healing of Christ through the cross.

March 18 – Week 4
“Receive Grace: The Workers in the Vineyard”
All workers in a vineyard are given the same pay from the master, no matter how long they have labored. All who have been called by the Master are blessed by the same reward in Christ.

March 25 – Week 5
“Receive Forgiveness: The Prodigal Son” Luke 15:11-32
A wayward son returns to the forgiving embrace of his father, who welcomes him home. We who have strayed can return again and again to the embrace of our Father, through the sacrifice of his Son.
