Advent is the Season of Anticipation! During the four weeks prior to Christmas we anticipate the Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He comes to us as the Spoken and Written Word of God, he comes to us in the Sacraments, he comes as the Word Made Flesh, the Child of Bethlehem, and we await His Second coming to take us home to be with Him for eternity. The services are on Wednesday nights at 7:30 pm.
Christmas Candlelight: 7:30 pm. This service is a Candlelight Service with special music and many well-known hymns. Parents are encouraged to bring their children.
Lent is the 40 day season that begins on Ash Wednesday calling us to focus on our need for a Savior. It is a time of repentance where we acknowledge our sin and ask God to forgive us through the Saving Act of the sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross. The services are on Wednesday nights at 7:00 pm.
Holy Week celebrates the Final Week in the Life of Jesus as he dies to make us free to be God’s Children. The Week begins with Passion Sunday/Palm Sunday which gives an over view of the week to come. Maundy Thursday service is held at 7:00 pm on Thursday and focuses on the Institution of the Lord’s Supper and the arrest and trial of Jesus. The service ends and continues the next evening, Good Friday at 7:00 pm, with the focus now being on the suffering and death of Jesus on the Cross. This service also ends in silence and concludes on Easter morning with the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead.
