Midweek TAIZЀ worship during Lent
Wednesday nights at 7:00 p.m. (until Palm Sunday), we will have a Communion service with the music based on the worship song of the Taizѐ spiritual community in France. The music is gentle, meditative, and uplifting.
Wednesday bible study will start a little earlier than usual, at 6:15, to make time for the service.
Choir practice follows at 7:30 as usual.
Tonight Messiah’s community will gather for the Ash Wednesday service with Imposition of Ashes and Holy Communion. It’s Feb. 10, at 6:30 P.M. You are invited. The Ash Wednesday service, though solemn, helps us enter as a church family in to the spirit of Lent.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, the 40 days before Easter (not counting Sundays). By tradition it is a time in the life of the church for reflection on our lives, repentance for our sins, and renewal in our faith and life.
