The Season of Lent

"Our Greatest Needs"

What do you really need right now? To answer that question, one must first define what a “need” is. We understand that a “need” is greater than a “want.” If you lack something you want, life goes on just fine. If you lack something you need, that presents a problem. Thus, to correctly answer that question, “What do you really need right now,” ultimately one must understand their greatest problems.

Mankind’s greatest problems are universal.  We all live under the curse of sin.  That sin makes us utterly helpless in our natural state.  Natural man is confused, unable to make sense of life.  Left in sin, man is doomed to death, and not just physical death.  After one’s heart stops comes another type of death that is infinitely worse, an eternal nightmare.

Lent is the season of the Church Year when we wrestle with our greatest needs.  Lent also shows us that in Christ, all our greatest needs are met.  Here is what the Spirit makes clear this season.  If you lack Christ, you have nothing.  If you have Christ, you have everything you truly need.

Midweek Lenten Services

Wednesdays   |   March 1, 8, 15, 22, 29   |   4:00  &  7:00 pm

After Ash Wednesday, we will continue to hold midweek services on the subsequent five Wednesdays during Lent.  Our order of worship will be Evening Prayer.  Our readings will be taken from the Penitential Psalms (i.e. 6, 32, 38, 51,102, 130, and 143) and the Passion History of Our Lord according to the Gospel of St. Matthew.  We hope you can join us as we follow Jesus’ journey to the cross from Gethsemane to Golgotha.
