Our theme for the church this program year is "Let Our Light Shine." There are many ways that we can let our light shine for Christ in the world. However, in order for our light to remain bright, we need to renew God's Spirit in our lives. We need to take time to stop, reflect, pray, study, and grow in God. Then, as the light of God burns brighter in our lives, we can be a beacon which reflects God's light for others to see.
Lent is a wonderful time to care for our spirits and renew our light. The focus of Lent this year is "Walking with Jesus." We will walk with Jesus through his journey from the desert of temptation to Jerusalem, where he was crucified and resurrected. In walking with Jesus, we will have a chance to reflect on our own lives, rediscover the blessings of Jesus' grace, and be renewed by God's love.
There are many ways we will be "Walking with Jesus" this Lent:
Palm Sunday, March 25 at 1:30 Lawrence Jay, the new director of Rolling Ridge Retreat Center, will lead us in a session of Labyrinths, and give us a chance to walk his Labyrinth.
Maundy Thursday, March 29, at 7:00, we will gather with Jesus for the Last Supper.
Good Friday, March 30, Children's Good Friday Workshop in the morning, noon community service, and a 7:00 service. In addition, there will be a special self-guided prayer walk "Scenes at the Cross" available throughout the day and after the 7:00 service.
Easter morning, April 1, Sunrise Service at 6:30, and Easter service at 8, 9, and 11.
Join us for this very special journey, "Walking with Jesus" this Lent.
Your brother in Christ,
