WHAT IS LENT

What is Lent and why does it last forty days? (From UMC.ORG)

Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday.  Lent comes from the Anglo-Saxon word "lencten," which means "spring."  The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan and preparing to begin his ministry.

Lent is a time of repentance, fasting, and preparation for the coming of Easter.  It is a time of self-examination and reflection.  In the early church, Lent was a time to prepare new converts for baptism.  Today, Christians focus on their relationship with God, often choosing to give up something or to volunteer and give of themselves for others.

Sundays in Lent are not counted in the forty days because each Sunday represents a "mini-Easter" and the reverent spirit of Lent is tempered with joyful anticipation of the Resurrection.

LENT SCHEDULE

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

ASH WEDNESDAY, March 6, we will have 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 18, we will have a dinner at 6:00 p.m., followed by a Communion Service in the Sanctuary.

EASTER MORNING, April 21, breakfast during Sunday School Hour (9:10 a.m.), followed by Worship at 10:30.

Please plan to attend each of these events.

WINTER WEATHER WORSHIP POLICY

I do not plan on canceling 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).
