This Year’s Lent and Easter Theme

Our Lent and Easter theme this year is based on a resource called Full to the Brim, which was created by a ministry called A Sanctified Art. This resource will guide our worship, and a bible study I will be leading. Daily devotions will be shared on social media, and a devotional booklet will also be available.

This is how A Sanctified Art describes the series:

The origins of Lent were that one was to leave their old life behind to fast and prepare to be baptized into a new way of living. In essence, this was a practice of stepping away from corrupt power, scarcity mentality, and empty rituals in order to live a more expansive and full life of faith. And so, our Lenten theme, Full to the Brim, is an invitation—into a radically different Lent, into a full life. It’s an invitation to be authentically who you are, to counter scarcity and injustice at every turn, to pour out even more grace wherever it is needed. When we allow ourselves to be filled to the brim with God’s lavish love, that love spills over. It reaches beyond ourselves; like water, it rushes and flows, touching everything in its path.

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 2nd.

Drive-through ash imposition will be offered at the Northampton St. entrance from 12:30 to 1:30 pm.
Worship, including imposition of ashes and Holy Communion, will be held in the sanctuary at 7:30 pm.

The Lenten Bible Study will begin on Tuesday, March 1st at 7:30pm. The study will be held on Zoom. Please contact Pastor Joel to receive the information to join the Zoom session.
