Study of the Small
Catechism to Begin
"The Small Catechism? What's that?" Or, "That sounds vaguely familiar. Did I learn about that in Confirmation?" If either of these thoughts popped into your head when you read "The Small Catechism" it is time to revisit it, and learn all about it. Who wrote it and when? Why was it written? What topics does it cover? And most importantly - why is this important to me today?
We will be meeting via Zoom, starting on Wednesday, January 20, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. Please contact Cheryl Statham at 610-588-6713 to give her your e-mail address so she will be able to send you the weekly invitations. The study will last for six weeks.
Note: If you have been participating in the weekly Bible Studies during 2020 you do not need to resend your e-mail address to Cheryl.
Ash Wednesday Services
The season of Lent will begin on February 17, Ash Wednesday. Worship services will be different this year because of the pandemic, but they will be happening. On Ash Wednesday, we will be offering the Imposition of Ashes in a drive through service at the church parking lot. Participants will not leave their car, but will drive up to Pastor Laine, who will put the sign of the cross on everyone, recite Psalm 51 and say a prayer for each carload. The morning session will run from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. and the evening session will be from 5:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. Please plan on attending this modified Ash Wednesday experience on February 17.
A different Lenten Litany will be posted on the church Facebook page every Wednesday during Lent by 5:00. Please look for this Lenten worship experience every week.
Pastor Laine will be leading a zoom worship on Easter Sunday from the nave. The Worship and Music Committee is planning to decorate the altar area, similar to what was done at Christmas. We will need Easter lilies to accomplish this, so we are asking people to sponsor flowers again this year. They will be available for pick-up after the zoom service is finished. Contact the church office if you would like to participate in this project.
Easter Worship Services Times
6:00 – Outdoor worship from The Chair. Wear masks and be prepared to social distance. We are looking for a few musicians to play at this service.
