THE HILLS OF LENT 

JOIN US every Wednesday at 7:00pm February 17-March 24 for a biblically chronological journey to “mountaintop experiences” which all focus on the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

 

At Mount Moriah, Abraham’s faith is tested and strengthened. At Mount Sinai, Moses and the Israelites receive the word of God. At Mount Carmel, Elijah calls for faith and faithfulness. Jesus joins the faithful in worship at Mount Zion. On Mount Olive, Jesus assures us that we too are the children of God. Finally, at Mount Calvary, we view “God’s own sacrifice complete.” 

February 17

Drive Up Ashes, 11a-1p, Worship in-person and online, 7p

Please note: ashes will be applied with a Q-Tip by a person wearing a mask

 

Drive Up Ashes is open to all and geared towards those who are not otherwise able to attend an Ash Wednesday worship service. Stay in your car, talk and pray with a Pastor, and receive ashes on your forehead. The ashen cross is a sign of how God's call and presence meets us where we are, helps us to turn towards righteousness and goodness, and walks with us along the journey.

The Pastors will be wearing masks, gloves, and applying the ashen crosses via a Q-Tip cotton swab.

There is no cost.  The price has already been paid in full.

Worship on Ash Wednesday will take place both in person and online at 7:00p.

If you would like to come in person, please note that seating is limited.

 

 

On Ash Wednesday we begin our forty-day journey toward Easter with a day of fasting and repentance. Marking our foreheads with dust, we acknowledge that we die and return to the earth. At the same time, the dust traces the life-giving cross indelibly marked on our foreheads at baptism. While we journey through Lent to return to God, we have already been reconciled to God through Christ. We humbly pray for God to make our hearts clean while we rejoice that “now is the day of salvation.” Returning to our baptismal call, we more intentionally bear the fruits of mercy and justice in the world. 

February 24

Mount Moriah

The mountain we approach on this day is Mount Moriah—not as it appears today but as
it would have looked almost 4,000 years ago, in the days of Abraham ... old Abraham ... blessed
at last in his old age with the son of God’s promise, Isaac. The road to Mount Moriah very much
involves Isaac, and the promise of God which he represents.

Holy Week and Easter are the most important times

on the calendar for Christians and those exploring the Christian faith.

 

It's a separate and holy time to intensely focus and reflect

on the story of our salvation through the

suffering, death, and resurrection of the Son of God, Jesus Christ.
