The Fifth Sunday in Lent
Holy Eucharist:  Rite II @ 10:00am

Coming this Sunday

In Sunday’s Gospel reading Jesus shows his power over death by raising Lazarus from the dead.  The prophet Ezekiel prophesies God breathing new life into dry bones. To those in exile or living in the shadows of death, these stories proclaim God’s promise of resurrection. 

Come to worship, to receive the breath of the Spirit, to hear the voice of Christ, to be fed at the table, and to celebrate the life God gives.

     Lenten Opportunities: 

Prayer “Net”:
A Fishing Net has been placed on the Cross in the back of the Church by the Monday Morning Prayer Warriors.
We are inviting you to tie a piece of yarn on the “Net” as a prayer for someone, or as a symbol of your renewed determination to follow Jesus.
Return as often as you’d like to tie a piece of yarn as a symbol of a prayer.
It can express the prayer of your heart without speaking a word. 
Allow the Holy Spirit to come closer to you by this simple gesture.

Jesus’ first followers were fishermen.  Jesus called them to leave their nets and follow him.

Seasonal Choir Invitation
Are you or someone you know interested in singing in the choir but cannot make a long-term commitment to sing? 
If so, then I invite you to consider joining the choir for the Lent Easter season.  
This is a wonderful time of year to sing songs of remembrance of what Christ sacrificed for us and to celebrate our Savior’s resurrection.  
Having additional voices in the choir at this time of year is also very helpful, as some of our regular members will be gone during the holiday. 
The choir will be singing each of the 5 Sundays in Lent which starts on February 26th and at the 7PM services on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. 
Rehearsals during Lent and the rest of the choir year will be on Sunday mornings at 9 AM. 
Feel free to contact me if you have any additional questions or just show up Sunday Morning!  614-506-8101.

Next Sessions will be April 2nd (Palm Sunday) and April 16th

 There will be Easter Crafts for kids after 10 AM worship on Easter Sunday!
