Join us in Worship on Sundays at 10:30 a.m.


Easter is a little earlier than last year.  Ash Wednesday is February 26.


One thing you can do as you observe Lent this year is to say a special prayer for our church each day.  "May we be guided by the will of God."


NEWSLETTER DEADLINE

The deadline for the March issue of the Arlingtonian is February 16.  please email articles to the church office or to Bro. Lee.

FORTY DAYS

The number 40 is one of those Biblical numbers of importance.

The Season of Lent lasts 40 days.

God sent rain for 40 days and nights in the great flood of Noah (Genesis 7:4).

Moses went up on Mount Sinai and spent 40 days with God (Exodus 24:18).

The Hebrew people wandered 40 years in the desert while traveling to the Promised Land (Numbers 14:33).

Elijah walked 40 days and nights going to Mount Horeb (1 Kings 19:8).

Jonah's call of judgment gave the city of Nineveh 40 days in which to repent or be destroyed (Jonah 3:4).

After being Baptized, Jesus was taken into the wilderness, where He fasted for 40 days, and was tempted by the devil (Matthew 4:1–2, Mark 1:12–13, Luke 4:1–2).

Some Christian traditions express the belief that Jesus lay for 40 hours in the tomb.

Luke wrote that the resurrected Jesus was with the apostles 40 days before he ascended up to heaven (Acts 1:3).

LENT SCHEDULE

This is a tentative schedule of events for Lent.  It is similar to last year.

ASH WEDNESDAY, February 26, we will have supper (maybe a pancake supper) at 6:00 p.m. with the first Lenten study following at 6:30.

For the REMAINING WEDNESDAY NIGHTS IN LENT (except Holy Week), we will have a soup supper at 6:00 p.m. with a study at 6:30.

MAUNDY THURSDAY, April 9, we will have a dinner at 6:00 p.m., followed by a Communion Service in the Sanctuary.

EASTER MORNING, April 12, breakfast during Sunday School Hour, followed by Worship at 10:30 a.m.

Please plan to attend each of these events.

WINTER WEATHER WORSHIP POLICY

I do not plan on cancelling worship for a little bad weather.  As a rule of thumb - if the roads are covered in ice or if there is more than 6 inches of new snow, I probably will not be here.  Warning:  The parking lot may not be cleared or salted.  Please use the back lot and glass doors to avoid the front steps.  YOU CAN MAKE UP YOUR OWN MIND IF YOU WANT TO RISK TRAVEL TO BE HERE.  If you are playing, singing, reading, or serving, do not feel undue pressure to be here.  If I do decide to cancel worship, it will be listed on WKYT channel 27 (Spectrum Cable 9).
