Lean into Lent

Lean Into Lent - UCC from University Christian Church on Vimeo.

This year as we Lean Into Lent, we will focus on the Spiritual in its many forms. Included will be some very special services of worship.

March 1 is Ash Wednesday. We will gather at 6:30 pm in Walker Hall for a time of prayer and reflection as we begin the Lenten Season. There will be time for quiet meditation and an opportunity to walk the labyrinth.

We will have two opportunities to worship during Holy Week. April 13 is Maundy Thursday. Our time of worship will begin with Foot-Washing in the Gallery from 6:30 – 6:45 pm and a service of Scripture and Song at 7 pm in the Sanctuary.  We will partake in the Lord’s Supper and remember Jesus’ arrest and betrayal.

On Good Friday, April 14, we will gather in the Sanctuary at noon to commemorate the crucifixion, death, and burial of Jesus. This brief service will be followed by a Friday Fellowship Meal in Room 207.

During this Lenten season, may we open ourselves to the Spiritual, place ourselves in God’s care, and follow Christ in pursuing compassion, justice, and peace.
