Lent begins with Ash Wednesday services, on February 13th,
service times are: 6:45 a.m., 12 noon and 7:00 p.m.
Our Lenten program begins on Wednesday, March 20th, with a weekly Lenten Eucharist at 6:45 a.m. followed by a breakfast in Musselman Hall. We also offer at 6:00 p.m. each Wednesday for the first four weeks of Lent a simple soup and salad supper. Following supper will be a presentation, discussion and short Bible study on the theme of forgiveness: what is it, and how do we do it? Bring a small notebook for journaling. We conclude each of the first four weeks with Stations of the Cross in the church. The fifth week we will again have our Christian Passover Seder. Jesus’ Last Supper was probably a Passover Seder. This is potluck, with Kosher-for-Passover foods. We have lots of easy recipes and you can buy some items ready-made! NOTE: The Seder begins earlier, at 5:45. There are no Stations the fifth week, as the Seder becomes a Communion service. Come join other parishioners in making Lent a time of reflection and renewal as we prepare for the great feast of Easter on March 31.
Lenten Breakfast and Evening Soup/Salad
Beginning on Wednesday, February 20, 2013, the annual Christ Church Lenten Breakfast and Evening Soup/Salad will begin. Volunteers are needed for each event. The dates are listed below.
Breakfast takes place after the 6:45 AM service (around 7:15). The responsibility of the Breakfast volunteers is to provide: a choice of eggs, pancakes, waffles, sweet rolls/Danish, coffee tea and juice.
Lenten Evenings Soup/Salad (6:00 PM), require volunteers to prepare soup and or a salad, bread or rolls. This year, there is a little problem setting-up Musselman Hall for breakfast and soup/salad as Floss and Marlene will be away on February 27th and March 6th. Volunteers will be needed to set-up Musselman Hall for the AM and PM functions on those dates.
Breakfast set-up can be done the day before, after 5 PM. Soup/Salad set-up around 5 PM on Wednesday, also someone or two are needed to set-up to make sure that the soups are heated and salads are ready on serving tables. This year we will be using disposable bowls and plastic flatware, so clean-up will be easier. Please contact Floss Rhine (610-534-9621) or Marlene Nickerson (610-659-3031) if you can help or have additional questions. Dates are as follows: Wednesday, February 20, Wednesday, February 27, Wednesday, March 6, Wednesday, March 13, Wednesday, March 20 (Sedar), Wednesday, March 27 – Breakfast only.
