Add Some Wonder to Your Lent!

Wednesday evenings during Lent, beginning March 4, our WONDER! experience will include the following:

  • 6:00-7:00   Dinner (please remember to sign up each week!)
  • 6:30             Jr. Bells
  • 7:00             IMPACT Middle School and Spark! Elementary groups
  • 7:30             Bell Ensemble
  • 7:00-8:15    Two Adult Opportunities for Your Lenten Experience

“Living your Lent Sheepishly: an Adult Wonder Class” (with homework)  Join us in the Prayer Room for a call to a Lenten focus and discipline found in Jesus’ “Parable of the Sheep & Goats” in Matthew 25. Rather than follow the tradition of giving something up as a spiritual discipline, we will challenge ourselves to take something on each week that will commit us to Jesus’ call and way of seeing and tending to those in need. Raising our awareness, engaging our compassion, changing a habit, responding in concrete actions – all “sheepish” ways of living Jesus’ way in this world. Join Jenny Warren and the rest of the flock on Wednesday evenings!

Lenten Prayer Stations: Each Wednesday Rooms 107-109 will be set apart for quiet, individual contemplation at Prayer Stations. A variety of stations will be available each week to encourage participants to reflect personally and meditatively through prayer. Spend as much time as you want or are able, skip the stations that don’t appeal to you, and visit as often as you’d like through Lent. Examples of stations are on display in the narthex today, so you can know what to expect when you arrive.

Share the Love – The CPC Mission Ministry asks all of us to join together to “Share the Love” during the month of February in a very tangible way—by bringing food items for The Lord’s Pantry and the Honey Brook Food Pantry. You will find this week’s shopping list in today’s bulletin insert for items to be brought back next Sunday, February 23. Please place your items in the boxes in the Narthexes.

You are Invited to Lunch to Celebrate the life of longtime CPC Member, Allen “Pete” Osborn on Saturday, February 22 at Noon in Fellowship Hall.

Ash Wednesday Worship: February 26 @ 7 pm: Join us for a service of worship and an opportunity to participate in the imposition of ashes, as we mark the beginning of the season of Lent – our journey of reflection and preparation for Holy week and Easter.  Childcare will be available for children infant to age 4.
