Lenten Season Programs
Some have Mardi Gras, Presbyterians have Pancakes.
Save the Date for Parish Pancake and Bible Quiz Night on
Shrove Tuesday—MARCH 5 at 6PM.
After last year’s successful revival of the Fat Tuesday event, the Deacons are back at it! Come join us on the 5th of March for a Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper. (Pancakes are traditionally served on Shrove Tuesday to use up the rich foods in the house before the Lenten fast.) And, make merry with our own form of raucous carnival fun in a friendly Bible Quiz.
Come hang with Hitchcock friends and enjoy good food and good fun. We hope to see you there!
Ash Wednesday—March 6
Ash Wednesday begins the journey of Lent. And, Lent is a journey. How can we possibly under-stand the joy of finding the tomb empty on Easter Sunday, if we have not first walked with Jesus along the way? The Imposition of the Ashes is the visible symbol of that willingness to journey, and a reminder of our place among the crowd.
Here is the schedule for the evening:
4:00-5:15pm- Children’s Choir Rehearsal
5:15-5:45pm- Worship in the Sanctuary with Imposition of the Ashes
5:45-6:30pm- Dinner in the LCH
6:00-7:30pm- Youth Forum
7:45pm- 15-Minute Liturgy with Imposition of the Ashes in the Chapel
Ash Wednesday is a day for humility, as we are reminded of the words from Genesis 3: “You are dust, and to dust you shall return.” That humility establishes our posture for the entire season of Lent as we place ourselves firmly in the shadow of the cross.
Lenten Digital Devotionals!
This Lenten Season, we are going to return to our Digital Devotionals (5 Minutes). With busy and varying work schedules, it has become harder and harder for people to gather mid-week for a vespers service. So, in seeking a way to reach everyone during this important time of the year, we are offering digital devotionals! You will have the opportunity to engage in these live online (using Facebook Live) at Noon on Wednesdays or to replay them at a time that works in your schedule (using YouTube).
As always, we are excited to try new things and find ways to reach you, and those with whom you might share these videos. As we get closer to Lent, we will share more details and instructions to help you all participate!
