Bread is present throughout the pages of the Bible, but especially at key times in salvation history. During our midweek Lenten services this year, we’ll look at some of the biblical stories involving bread, and explore themes of hospitality, generosity, sufficiency, and trust. We’ll also share some of our own stories, as we reflect on the many ways God provides his people with bread for the journey. The Ash Wednesday communion service will include the traditional imposition of ashes as a sign of repentance. There is no soup supper on Ash Wednesday. From Wednesday, February 20 through March 20, there will be soup and bread suppers at 6:00 p.m. in Heinecken Hall, along with a message based on one of the “bread stories” in the Bible. In keeping with our Lenten theme, we plan to have fresh-baked bread as part of our Wednesday suppers.
Everyone is welcome to attend our Lenten Services. Dress is casual. Join us for Lenten worship plus great soup & bread.
