A Season of Opportunity

Lent 2019

A Season of Opportunity

The season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 6, and I hope you will be with us for worship at 6:45 pm in the Sanctuary. Lent is also a time when we begin to see signs of growth in the natural world around us. The words length and lengthen are associated with the Lenten season. This is a time of the lengthening of our days—more light which provides for more growth. Lent is a time to turn our hearts to God and live more fully and abundantly.

The worship theme for Lent will be “Opportunity.” As we reflect upon these passages we can find courage and strength to make life-giving choices and changes. As you prepare for worship each weekend, I encourage you to read and reflect upon these texts:

March 9-10 A Tempting Opportunity, Luke 4:1-13
March 17 Youth Sunday
March 23 Message in Music with The Derbytown Quartet
March 24 An Opportunity to Be Fruitful, Luke 13:1-9
March 30-31 An Opportunity to Come Home, Luke 15:1-3, 11b-32
April 6-7 An Extravagant Opportunity, John 12:1-11
April 13-14 An Opportunity to Cry—and Cry Out, Luke 19:28-40
