There will be a Service with Imposition of Ashes and Holy Communion March 6 at 12 PM and 5:30 PM. “Lent is often experienced as a season of reflection, looking inward, soul-searching. It’s a season for looking intently toward Jesus, the author of our faith, and longing to know him better. It’s a season of community, because we come together to worship and share a meal.” (Sundays and Seasons, Lent) During the forty days of Lent, we join to share God’s Word through worship and to share fellowship with one another. During this Lenten season, we encourage all members of Zion to be faithful in both worships Wednesday evening and Sunday morning.
Our Lenten theme this year is: “Perfect Love Casts Out Fear.” Each Wednesday during Lent we gather for Evening Prayer beginning at 5:30 PM. Throughout the Lenten season, and each week on Wednesday nights, we will explore dimensions of God’s love for us and the love of Christ that we share.
Week 1: Mar 13Leviticus 19 Love Your Neighbor as Yourself
Week 2: Mar 20 Hosea 11 When Israel was a child I love him
Week 3: Mar 27 Deut. 10 Love immigrants because you were immigrants in Egypt
Week 4: Apr 3 1 Cor. 13 If I Have Faith but do not have Love, I am Nothing
Week 5: Apr 10 Deut. 7 It was not because you were Greater that the Lord Loved You
Please look for this year’s Lenten devotional book, “Lasting Hope” that will be available at our Ash Wednesday worship services on March 6. May this Lenten journey inspire and guide you as you set your eyes on Jesus who is our source of the Love of the triune God.
