Dear St. Mark friends,
Winter isn’t the only season of length this time of year. For the past seven weeks, we’ve immersed ourselves in the full season of Epiphany. Naturally, this leads to a later date for Easter, as well. But now, we move into the season of Lent, beginning with Ash Wednesday on March 6, with two services at noon and at 6:45 P.M.
This year, our Wednesday evening Lenten services will center on, “Five Gifts of Discipleship.” Our scripture readings will come from Paul’s letter to the Philippians. I encourage you to read Philippians in advance as you prepare to join us for Wednesday evening worship this Lenten season. Here is our mid-week schedule:
March 13 Live among God’s faithful people
March 20 Hear the word of God and share in the Lord’s supper
March 27 Proclaim the good news of God in Christ through word and deed
April 3 Serve all people, following the example of Jesus
April 10 Strive for justice and peace in all the earth
Please join us this Lenten season as we reflect upon these valuable gifts of discipleship.
Walking this journey of faith with you,
