We celebrate the Season of Lent
Christians have observed the Season of Lent for more than 1500 years. Originally it was a time for people to prepare for their baptism on Easter. Over the years, Lent has become a season when all members of Christ’s Body are encouraged to open wide their hearts and imaginations to the events and meanings of Christ’s sacrifice and suffering on the Cross.
Our 2014 Lenten Series: The Apostle’s Creed developed over time from the basic instruction used for candidates for Baptism on Easter. Our Worship Team thought is would be useful to hear the Creed’s Story of Jesus’ Passion, especially informed by the Heidelberg’s Catechism’s interpretation of the meaning of the Creed. In Lent for this year we will note the moments of the Passion and marvel together over the Savior’s loving sacrifice for us and give us new meaning we confess, “I Believe in Jesus Christ….”.
All are welcome at First Church. Please join us for worship, song & prayer each Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m.
Learning with aPurpose!
Every Sunday except the first Sunday of the month adult education sessions are held after morning worship. These sessions which run approximately 40 minutes focus on timely topics of interest and are designed to extend and enhance our faith and to broaden understanding of community agencies, programs and concerns.
