Word of the Week, February 9: Enrich

January was a month full of ministry around Boston Avenue. So many good things are happening across age levels, inside and outside of the church! February promises more engaging opportunities. Our staff and lay leaders do incredible work to make all of this meaningful ministry possible.

The 14th is not only Valentines Day, but this year is Ash Wednesday, also. We will have several opportunities for you to begin your Lenten season with prayer and the imposition of ashes here at the church. I hope you will choose one of the services and join us.

Our Lenten Lecture series is also coming this month. Dr. William Lawrence will be here beginning Saturday, February 17 with a dinner and presentation from Dr. Lawrence. He will also preach for Sunday morning worship (we will combine services at 11:00 a.m. in the sanctuary) and then lecture Sunday evening at 5:00 p.m. (also with a box dinner option). His concluding lecture will be Monday evening February 19 at 7:00 p.m.

We have one more Sunday in our current sermon series Meeting Jesus Again. Our text will be Mark 9:2-9. It is the story known as The Transfiguration and gives this Sunday that special designation in the Christian calendar. Jesus, along with Peter, James, and John have this mystical experience up on a mountain. We will explore the implications for our lives today as we read this powerful story in the sermon, Jesus Is Confirmed.

Beyond Ash Wednesday and Sunday morning worship there will be opportunities to grow in faith during Lent. Watch for details and make an intentional choice of where you can plug in to enrich your life as you grow closer to God!
