Ash Wednesday Divine Service
Lenten Midweek Prayer Services

       On March 1st, we will begin the Lenten season with a Divine Service for Ash Wednesday (at the church, 7:30 pm).

       Our Lenten Midweek Services will be held every Wednesday at 7:30 pm after that, beginning on March 8th.  The theme of these services this year with be: "Where in the World Is God?" Going through the passion story, we'll consider where God is in the story and how He is with us when we are in those very places as well. Come join us as we meditate on this wonderful news!

     March 8        On a Donkey
                                (service at Greenspring Village)
     March 15       In the Garden
     March 22       Under Arrest
     March 29       On Trial
     April 5           Under the Whip

       We again will be using the liturgy of Vespers in the Lutheran Service Book (page 229f). Also, we will continue our practice of having a simple soup supper prior to each of the services that are held at the church. (We cannot do this for the service that will be at Greenspring Village.) We hope this makes it a little easier for those of you who work to come to the services and not be so rushed! (We usually start to eat around 6:30, but come when you can.) Hope to see you!
