Dear Friends:

The time of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 18, with the Imposition of Ashes at 12 noon and 7:00 pm. On the succeeding Wednesdays we will meet at 7:00 for Holden Evening Prayer, and some outstanding preachers. As we celebrate our 250th Anniversary year, our 2015 Lenten theme will be…

The Lord Has Anointed Me!
What Does it Mean to Be the Church?

This year as we travel together on these Lenten Wednesday evenings we will focus on what is God calling me to do? What is God calling the church to be? Our overarching focus will be this passage from the Gospel of Luke:

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me
to bring good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim release for the captives,
and recovery of sight to the blind,
to let the oppressed go free,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.
