Ash Wednesday, Lenten, and Holy Week Services

Christ, Our Passover Lamb

“For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.” 1 Corinthians 5:7


When Israel was in bondage in Egypt, God saved them through the Passover lambs. Those lambs shed their blood so that God’s people would be freed from their bondage. We were also in bondage to sin, death, and all the power of the devil. But Paul writes that Christ our Passover Lamb has been sacrificed. He frees us from our bondage. Many of the parts of the Jewish Passover meal foreshadow Christ and the salvation that He would bring. This Lenten season our theme is "Christ, our Passover Lamb." It will be a reflection of the different parts of the Passover meal. One of the highlights of the season will be a Seder Supper on Saturday April 13 at 5:30 pm. We did this several years ago, but we do have many new members since that time. Others of us have probably forgotten. Please join us every week for our Lenten services and suppers. Note that the midweek services will be on Wednesdays rather than Thursdays during lent.

Each week the supper is at 5:30, and worship is at 7:00 pm
