Lent Events

Join us during Lent season as we prepare to celebrate the resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ. You find all upcoming events on this page. 

Songs of the Ascents Service

March 27 at 11:30 a.m. in the Chapel
A midday prayer service focusing on the culmination of the Lenten Journey by praying through and reflecting on the Songs of Ascents, Psalms 120-134. These 15 short psalms were traditionally sung by Jewish pilgrims making their way up to the Temple in Jerusalem for the Holy Festivals. We'll be letting them wash over us in a time of prayer and contemplation interspersed with music and silence in preparation for our journey through Holy Week. 

Following the service, enjoy Lentil Soup in the Family Life Center.

 

Maundy Thursday Tenebrae Service

March 29 at 6 p.m. in the Family Life Center
Our Maundy Thursday celebration will include a Service of Tenebrae, or Shadows. With readings, music and the “deconstruction” of our chancel, this event reflects on the passion of Christ and our own desolation at His crucifixion. We will gather in the Sanctuary immediately following the Maundy Thursday meal and communion in the Family Life Center.
