  • Table Manners: Grace for When We Get It Wrong

    Life is complicated and sometimes despite our best efforts, we get it wrong. The disciples struggled in that same way. Even though they got to experience life with Jesus, sometimes they didn’t make the right choices. Regardless of what they did, Jesus always offered them grace and helped to set them on the right path. Join us on Sundays, beginning March 22, as we explore Table Manners: Grace for When We Get It Wrong.

    Sundays, March 22-April 12
    8:30 a.m. – Traditional Worship
    9:45 a.m. – Modern Worship
    11:00 a.m. – Traditional Worship

ASH
WEDNESDAY

  • Come-and-Go Personal Reflection

    Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent. Its official name is “Day of Ashes,” so called because of the practice of rubbing ashes on one’s forehead in the sign of a cross. Since it is exactly 40 days (excluding Sundays) before Easter Sunday, it always falls on a Wednesday. While the Bible does not mention Ash Wednesday, it does record accounts of people in the Old Testament using dust and ashes as symbols of repentance and/or mourning (2 Samuel 13:19; Esther 4:1; Job 2:8; Daniel 9:3). The modern tradition of rubbing a cross on a person’s forehead identifies that person with Jesus Christ.

    Come-and-Go Personal Reflection: This year at Custer Road we will offer two ways to observe Ash Wednesday. Stop by our Sanctuary from 11:30am-1pm and receive an imposition of ashes when you take some time for personal prayer and reflection at our Come-and-Go Ash Wednesday Observance.

  • Ash Wednesday Worship Service

    Join us at 6:30pm in the Sanctuary for this simple worship experience. You will be invited to come forward and receive ashes on your forehead if you so choose, and may kneel and pray. It is a meaningful way to mark the beginning of the season of Lent, and to mark one’s self as a follower of Jesus.

    6:30pm in The Sanctuary

Lenten Prayer Labryrinth

  • Lenten Labryrinth

    Throughout the season of Lent, you are invited to come and walk our Lenten Labryrinth for a time of prayer and reflections. The labyrinth will be available beginning Sunday, March 1, through Easter Sunday, April 12. We know that taking time to walk in the labyrinth will help you to deepen your walk with God throughout Lent.

    The Lenten Labryrinth is located on the second floor of The Commons area outside the children’s play area by the great staircase. The labyrinth is available anytime the church building is open.
