Ash Wednesday service - Wednesday, March 5. 
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent in the Christian Church. The name dies cinerum (day of ashes) likely dates from as early as the eighth century. Ashes are placed on the foreheads of the congregants in the sign of a cross. This service begins a series of Wednesday services continuing through Holy Week called Journey to the Cross, a time of reflection and penitence, within the reality of grace found in Jesus Christ and His death on the cross.

Sunday, April 6   Walk with Jesus, a Journey to the Cross event, will be held from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in the Dining Hall. Participants will walk through five guided stations that represent Jesus’ last days on earth. There is something to see, hear, taste or do at each station. All are welcome to attend. Parents, you are invited to join your children during the Sunday School hour. Engage them in faith conversations related to the life and death of Jesus.

Thursday, April 17   5 pm  Dinner and Seder sampling (no dinner on Wednesday, April 16)

Tickets ($6) are required and are available for purchase in the reception room on Sunday mornings and by the food service tellers on Wednesday evenings through Palm Sunday.
The Seder meal is traditionally a joyful family dinner which is held in Jewish homes on Passover and is the final meal Jesus ate with his disciples before his arrest and crucifixion. Our meal will be a simple, kid-friendly dinner (chicken tenders, mac-n-cheese, green beans and a cookie) followed by a shortened sampling of the Passover meal and worship. The Seder will take place around the tables and will be led by members of our staff.
