The Journey of Lent ~ 40 Days from Winter to Spring 

From the Pastor’s Pen

It is hard to believe that January has flown by on the wings of crazy weather patterns and way too many cold and flu-like illnesses. Despite the snow flurries and freezing temperatures of this past month, February brings with it the promise of warmer days ahead and spring flowers emerging once more from their long winter hibernation. At least that is what we are all longing for: Spring—the season of rebirth and resurrection.

The Annual Report found in the Newsletter reflects just a part of who we are as a family of faith in this place for this time in history. We have a lot of blessings to celebrate as we look forward to the bright future that is before us.

As the Church and followers of Christ, we will soon be moving into the Season of Lent. On Ash Wednesday, February 18, we begin our Lenten journey through the desert wilderness toward Easter. Ash Wednesday derives it name from the penitential sackcloth and ashes mentioned frequently in the Old Testament. This 7 pm worship service is very spiritually moving and inspiring. If you have not participated before, I encourage to do so this year as a way of enriching your journey of faith.

Please keep our church family in your prayers and continue to listen for God’s leading as we seek to be God’s blessing to others in our community and in the world.

Your sister in Christ,
