Lenten Midweek Worship

Join us for Wednesday Night Vespers during the Season of Lent as we explore some of the most familiar teachings of Jesus from his Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5-7 and relate them to the events surrounding Christ’s life, death and resurrection!
 

Wednesday, March 4 at 6:15 pm in the Sanctuary

We remember that Christ calls us to be salt and light in this world of sin. We who have tasted and seen his great love for us on the cross can spend our Lent savoring his salvation and shining with his glory and grace in the places where he has put us.

Wednesday, March 11 at 6:15 pm in the Sanctuary

We remember that Lent is a season of prayer and fasting. We grow in our relationship with Christ by communicating with him, and we learn more about him and ourselves by giving up those things that can distract us from our connection to him.

Wednesday, March 18 at 6:15 pm in the Sanctuary

We recognize that so much of our lives, even in Lent, is spent worrying about what might happen or what has happened. Christ teaches us to stop being anxious, but simply to trust that he knows what is best and will take care of us to the very end.
 

Wednesday, March 25 at 6:15 pm in the Sanctuary

We recognize that we live in a very judgmental world, so Jesus’ advice not to judge sounds radical to our modern ears. When we leave all judgment up to God, we free ourselves to look at one another through fresh and forgiving eyes.

Wednesday, April 1 at 6:15 pm in the Sanctuary

We recognize that we build our lives on very shaky foundations, and then we are surprised when things start collapsing. Jesus reminds us in his teachings that the only solid foundation is himself, the Rock of our salvation. On him alone we build.

Maundy Thursday (most likely from the Latin, mandatum, meaning a new commandment) or Holy Thursday begins a single service that spans three days, called the Triduum. What is begun tonight is not concluded until the Easter Vigil or the first Eucharist of Easter Sunday. This is one story told in three parts over three days. This is the story that Jesus began on Palm Sunday when He entered Jerusalem to complete all He had come to accomplish.
