This year’s theme for our mid-week Lenten services is “courage.” We’ll consider Biblical examples of how people of God showed courage in the face of adversity, uncertainty, and even death. Our series highlights the following Biblical accounts of courage;
Mary; Service of Prayer and Preaching, Wednesday, February 17, 7pm
Abraham; Service of Prayer and Preaching on Wednesday February 24, 7pm
Stephen; Service of Prayer and Preaching on Wednesday March 2, 7pm
Esther; Service of Prayer and Preaching on Wednesday March 9, 7pm
Jesus; Service of Prayer and Preaching on Wednesday March 16, 7pm
Every week’s message will also accent the courage of Jesus on our behalf, and how we might see all these examples as encouragement for us to go and do likewise. We will also receive assurances of forgiveness for all those times when our own courage fails us and we fall prey to weakness and sin.
Thanks be to God that Christ died for us despite our lack of courage, and still welcomes us as HIS beloved children in Holy Baptism, and then nourishes us with HIS Holy Body and Blood!
As we move from Lent into Holy Week, please keep these other worship opportunities in mind.
