Daily Remembrance – Wednesday Worship – Bible Study – Give
On Wednesday, February 22, we will begin our Lent Journey with Ash Wednesday Worship. At both the 11 AM and 7 PM, you are invited to receive a sign of the cross on your forehead and hear these words…
“Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return.”
The words allude to when God admonished Adam and Eve as they left paradise in the Book of Genesis. For more than fifteen hundred years, Christians have used these words to mark the day.
Lent is a way of joining Jesus in his walk to Jerusalem and eventually the cross. You are invited to participate in a faith practice. Below are some
Daily Remembrances: Many people often give something up, a sacrifice. People try to stop a bad habit or deny themselves something they enjoy like: chocolate, sugar drinks, alcohol, tv, buying fancy coffee, etc.
Others take something on, such as worship, Bible Study, service, or a donation.
Wednesday Worship Five-Week Series on Jesus the Healer. I would love to hear your story if who have experienced healing attributed to faith, whether it was physical, emotional, relational, financial, etc. There will be worship in person at 11 AM and 7 PM.
11 AM Worship is Service of the Word. Worship will begin with the St. Luke’s Preschool Students sharing a song or two. Following worship a light lunch will be available in Fellowship Hall.
7 PM Worship will be Holden Evening Prayer. This will also be online. If you would like to watch from home, books are available at the office. (Please return at the end of Lent.)
Bible Study will be offered on 1st and 3rd Tuesdays, at 7 PM, for five-sessions here at St. Luke’s. Come for a session or the whole series:
February 21 – Story of Jesus according to Matthew
March 7 – Jesus the Healer
March 21 – Jesus the Teacher
April 4 – Jesus the Messiah
April 18 – Follow Jesus Today
Give your time, finances, or items:
There are a number of volunteer opportunities available here at St. Luke’s and in our community. I appreciate the website, https://www.volunteermatch.org/search. Platelets can be donated every week. Use this season of Lent to try something out.
There are Lent Wednesday Offering for those who have the giving envelopes. For those who do not, simply use an envelope from the sanctuary or online: https://secure.myvanco.com/L-Z4NZ/home
Donation of items is quite timely. March is VEAP Foodshare Month. Here is a link of their most needed items: https://veap.org/most-needed-items. You can also make a donation online through St. Luke’s: https://secure.myvanco.com/L-Z4NZ/campaign/C-12AC8
Another popular donation are clothes or other items, a great way to kick-off your Spring Cleaning. Our family did this one year. I would pick out a piece of clothing each morning while getting dresses – an outfit to wear and an item to give.
All of these qualify for the 100 ACTS OF KINDNESS. Please add a leaf to our tree outside the sanctuary. If you’re unable to come to church, contact the office and we will add a leaf for you.
What Faith Practice will you choose this year? Would love to hear in the comments.
