Ash Wednesday Service-February 26, 6:30pm: Join us for an evening of worship as we begin the Lenten season, a 40-day period of reflection and renewal leading us to the celebration of Easter. Why 40 days? Because 40 is a significant number in Scripture. In Genesis, the flood which destroyed the earth was brought about by 40 days and nights of rain. The Hebrews spent 40 years in the wilderness before reaching the land promised to them by God. Moses fasted for 40 days before receiving the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai. Jesus spent 40 days fasting in the wilderness in preparation for his ministry. (His time in the wilderness is the key event for the duration of Lent.)
Then…beginning Wednesday, March 4,everyone is invited to attend a 4-week study of Max Lucado’s “He Chose the Nails: What God Did to Win Your Heart,” to be presented during Wednesday Night Connection at 6:15pm. For more information contact Darrin at email@example.com.
