Lenten Season 2019

Join us for Lenten Worship centered around our Lenten Theme: “Forgiveness”

Wednesday, March 6, 7pm
Traditional Ash Wednesday Worship Service.
Soup supper starting at 5:30pm
At worship, all are invited to come up for the imposition of ashes, and to contemplate your mortality with the words, “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” We
think upon the many ways we are encouraged to draw ever nearer to God and spend time loving God and our neighbors.
We also celebrate Holy Communion with one another.

Wednesdays, March 13 thru April 10
Soup supper starting at 5:30pm
Free will mission donation for the supper supports our Lenten mission projects: the local ELF coalition of Habitat for Humanity ($1000) and remainder to the Heart Ministry Center at 24th and Binney.
The mission of the Heart Ministry Center is “Providing food, clothing, healthcare and a way forward to people severely affected by poverty in the Omaha area.”
Midweek Lenten Worship Service at 7pm
During these 5 weeks we focus on “Forgiveness”.
Our request for forgiveness occurs in worship regularly.  Our worship regularly begins with a confession and forgiveness.  In the Lord’s Prayer we ask that we be forgiven as we forgive others.  We repeatedly ask God for forgiveness, repent of our sinful ways, and turn back to God.  Yet sin and forgiveness continue to plague our brokenness with God, and with
the rest of humanity.   Pastor Becky will share her insights into both the hard work of working through forgiveness and the transformational power forgiveness can have on relationships with other people—and our ability to not let guilt, anger, and brokenness destroy our own health and ability to find peace and joy that lasts.
