Lenten Schedule 2024

What occupied Jesus’ time during the final weeks of His journey to the cross and the shedding of His blood for our redemption? We know of Jesus’ humble entrance into Jerusalem amidst shouts of “Hosanna!” and “Blessed is He!” We know of His washing the disciples’ feet and instituting the blessed Sacrament in the Upper Room. We know of His prayer, betrayal, and arrest in the Garden of Gethsemane. We know of His faithful confession before Caiaphas. We know of His silence before Pontius Pilate. And we know of His forsakenness by the Father and seven words on the cross as He finishes our salvation.

But what preceded Palm Sunday? What was He teaching early in Holy Week? And what was the content of His prayer before He makes His way to the Mount of Olives? Join us this Lent as we follow Jesus on “The Path to Calvary.” Below is our schedule of services.

Dinners will be served in the multi-purpose room the five Wednesdays after Ash Wednesday (5:15-6:30pm). See the Calendar for specific dates. Donations will be accepted. All are welcome.

Ash Wednesday • February 14 • 7:00pm

Join us as we begin our 40-day journey to the cross with a solemn Divine Service. This service begins with the imposition of ashes, features Jesus’ words from the Sermon on the Mount, includes a choral piece, and ends with the Lord’s Supper. The sermon will explore Jesus’ words from His sermon on the mount, wash away the ashes of our sinfulness via Christ’s forgiveness, and clothe us with His righteousness.

Wednesday Services • February 21 to March 20 • 7:00pm

Join us for these 45-minute candlelight Evening Prayer services, filled with Scripture, prayer, and song. The sermons will explore Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead (John 11:1-45), Jesus predicting His own death (Matthew 20:17-28), Jesus being anointed for burial (John 12:1-8), Jesus’ final teachings (Mark 11:12-15a, 19-25), and Jesus’ high-priestly prayer (John 17:1-26). Each will deliver Christ’s forgiveness and fill us with the joy of His salvation.

“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 6:23
