Lenten Season Programs
Some have Mardi Gras, Presbyterians have Pancakes.
Save the Date for Parish Pancake and Bible Quiz Night on
Shrove Tuesday, February 13th at 6PM.
The Deacons are reviving an old Hitchcock tradition and adding a new twist. Come join us on the 13th of February 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 pitting Parish vs Parish in a friendly Bible Quiz.
Come hang with Hitchcock friends, get to know others in your Parish, and enjoy good food and good fun. We hope to see you there!
Ash Wednesday—February 14
It might seem strange, but Ash Wednesday being the same day as Valentine’s Day actually works theologically. Being reminded of the gift of love in our lives is a great way to start the season of Lent. However, it does cause some challenges logistically for us, as we know that many people will have plans for that evening. So, here is the schedule for Ash Wednesday, February 14th, with hope that you will be able to come and begin the journey with us:
7:00 am in the Chapel- 15-minute liturgy with the Imposition of the Ashes
11:00 am- Digital Devotional
4:00-5:00 pm- Children’s Choirs Rehearsal
5:00 pm in the Sanctuary- 30-Minute Liturgy with Imposition of the Ashes
5:30 pm- Pizza Dinner in the Choir Room!
(Please let the office know if you plan to eat)
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 try something brand new. With busy and varying worship 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 11am on Wednesday mornings 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!
