Ash Wednesday Services
February 18, 2015
Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent.
Holy Communion services with the imposition of ashes will be offered as follows:
- 10:00 am in the Chapel and
- 6:30 pm in the Sanctuary.
Our Wednesday mid-week Lenten services will follow the same schedule the next five weeks with soup and sandwiches served in the Parish Hall beginning at 5:15 p.m. (note, no dinner will be served Ash Wednesday).
Our Lenten theme this year is Facing The Cross.
Here are the weekly Scripture lessons:

“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
February 25 — Facing Temptation — Hebrews 4:15
“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.”
March 4 — Facing Our Fears — Isaiah 41:10
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God.”
March 11 — Facing Our Worldliness — Matthew 6:19-20
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven.”
March 18 — Facing One Another — Ephesians 4:32
“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”
March 25 — Facing Suffering — Romans 8:18
“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.”
