Lent is the season before Easter, beginning on Ash Wednesday (this year March 5, 2014) and ending with the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection on Easter Sunday (April 20, 2014). Here’s some ways the Isaiah’s Table community is recognizing this special time in the Christian year:
Ash Wednesday Worship Service- Wednesday, March 5th at 6:30 pm in Lee Chapel. This service will be interactive and participatory focusing on spiritual practices.
Wednesday Evening Spiritual Nurture during Lent will feature the Animate- Bible DVD study. Click here for more information about this study. This study will be held each Wednesday evening beginning at 6:30 pm March 12- April 23.
Saturday Worship will focus on stories of Jesus’ ministry found in the Gospels of Matthew and John. Saturday April 19th will be a special worship service, a Journey Through Holy Week. This service will feature stories from Jesus’ last week before his crucifixion.
On Saturday, March 29th, there will be a Fellowship Luncheon after worship. This is a fun time where games are played, a meal is shared and relationships are built.
