Bring your lunch and join us for a time of fellowship and thoughtful worship during the season of Lent. Coffee, tea, and desserts will be provided. Our weekly Lenten lunches are held each Wednesday at noon from Ash Wednesday (February 14th) until Holy Week (March 28th).
Lent is a time of reflection. For some, that means giving up something or doing something you should have done anyway. All of this is fine as long as it has a purpose. I think the purpose to set aside time for reflection… reflection on what it means to be a Christian today.
Lent is a time to look inside ourselves and see how we measure up against the standard set by Jesus himself. You are invited to do that together and look at the standard set in the “Sermon on the Mount,” the most famous sermon preached by Jesus himself. For seven weeks during lent, let us reflect on the following topics:
February 14 “Christian Character” (Matthew 5:1-12)
The beatitudes. Being blessed.
February 21 “Christian Influence” (Matthew 5:13-16)
Being the salt and light of the world.
February 28 “Christian Appearances” (Matthew 6:8-16)
Do not be like them.
March 7 “Christian Ambitions” (Matthew 6:19-24)
You cannot serve two masters.
March 14 “Christian Attitude” (Matthew 6:25-34)
Seek first the kingdom of God.
March 21 “Christian Relationships” (Matthew 7:1-14)
Do to others what you want them to do to you.
March 28 “Christian Commitment” (Matthew 7:24-28)
Building on solid ground
