Lenten Schedule 2023

Pilate asks Jesus, “Are You the King of the Jews?” He asks because it wasn’t obvious. So we do not miss Him and all His benefits, Saint Matthew identifies our merciful King of kings and Lord of lords, who goes where human reason would never expect a king to go—high and lifted up on a cross, bearing away the sin of the world, so that He could triumph over it in the resurrection. He did all of this so you might be baptized and received the exalted title “son of God.”

Below is our schedule of services.

Dinners will be served in the multi-purpose room each Wednesday (5:30-6:30pm) by various groups within the congregation. See the Calendar for specific dates. Donations will be accepted. All are welcome.

Ash Wednesday • February 22 • 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 the King’s wisdom (Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21), wash away the ashes of our sinfulness via Christ’s forgiveness, and clothe us with His righteousness.

Midweek Services • March 1, 8, 15, 22, 29 • 7:00pm

Join us for these 45-minute candlelight Evening Prayer services, filled with Scripture, prayer, and song. The sermons will explore the King betrayed (Matthew 26:47-56), the King denied (Matthew 26:69-75), the King condemned (Matthew 27:11-26), the King mocked (Matthew 27:27-31), and the King on the cross (Matthew 27:35-44). 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
