Almsgiving

“Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover him, and not to hide yourself from your own flesh? Then shall your light break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up speedily; your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard” (Isaiah 58). Almsgiving, or giving to the poor, is the third discipline Christians are encouraged to increase during Lent. Being a people who see those in need and not only wish them well, but provide for them, is integral to what it means to follow Jesus. On April 10th Tom Wilkin will share about the importance of caring for the poor and how doing so helps us to see and know Jesus even more. Soup and salad will be provided.

The Church Calendar

Lent is one of the most important seasons in the Church calendar, but it is part of a larger whole. From Advent through to Pentecost, the Church Calendar walks us through the life of Jesus to help us pattern our lives after his. On April 3 Jason Lyon will lead a class that walks through the calendar of the Church and explore how intentionally following the calendar can help us know Jesus more and more fully enter into his life, death, and resurrection. Soup and salad will be provided.

Fasting

“Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them he was hungry” (Luke 4). The forty days of Lent are designed for us to join our Lord in the wilderness where he fasted for us to show us how to resist the devil. On March 27th Dick Haug will teach a class exploring what fasting is and how God can use fasting to make us disciplined to endure temptations. Soup and salad will be provided.

Why Liturgy Matters

Every religious gathering follows some kind of order, but where do these ideas come from? How much of this is just human tradition? Should we care about traditions or cast them aside? On March 20th at 6:00 Ron Offringa will lead a class exploring what the liturgy is, where many of the elements of Christian worship come from, and why the order and way we worship God matters. Soup and salad will be provided.

Prayer

Ash Wednesday

We will enter into the season of Lent with our Ash Wednesday service at 6:30pm. Ash Wednesday is a day when we remember that the our sin has separated us from God and brought death into our lives, that we need to repent of our sins, and that we need God’s grace and forgiveness to bring us back to him.
