Looking Within: Lent 2018 at Trinity Church

Ash Wednesday Worship

Wednesdsay, February 14, 2018  -  12:00pm & 7:00pm

We will begin the introspective season of Lent together on Wednesday, February 14, by sharing a worship service which will end with an Imposition of Ashes.  Palms from last Palm Sunday will be symbolically burned to ash within the service.

The tradition of imposing ashes on foreheads (or the back of your hand) reminds us to humble ourselves as people of faith. It also reminds us of our own mortality, as we recall "earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust," words that point us beyond our mortal lives to the eternal life we share with God.  

'Three Simple Rules' Wednesday Study

Wednesdays in Lent  -  10:00am & 6:30pm* (6:00 on Ash Wednesday)

During the weeks of Lent, Pastor Cherie will facilitate one study on faith essentials with two options for attending: mornings at 10 AM and evenings at 6:30 PM. The study, entitled Three Simple Rules, is by United Methodist Bishop Rueben Job and provides reflection on three principles of Christian life. Participant books are $6.00. This is a Bible study that invites us to dive into scriptural resources to find clarity on the essentials of our faith. There will be a brief DVD segment for each class meeting - and then we'll share discussion based on a workbook.

Wednesday Mornings @ 10 AM: February 14, 21, 28 & March 7, 14, 21
Wednesday Evenings: February 14 @ 6 PM; 6:30 in the weeks that follow, Feb. 21, 28 & March 7, 14, 21

Lenten Services with Light Lunch

Wednesdays in Lent  -  12:00pm

We'll share short services in our sanctuary at noon, beginning with Ash Wednesday on February 14 through March 21 - and then adjourn to Fellowship Hall for a light lunch.

Our focus for Lent this year will be  'Looking Within - at Essentials of Our Faith.'  Lay speakers from Trinity will share stories of faith and spiritual disciplines that are most meaningful to them, with support from Pastor Cherie.
