Would you like to make your faith public on this first day of Lent?

Please join Pastor Stan at Panera Bread in Waugh Chapel between 6:00 AM – 10:00 AM for a quiet prayer and marking with ashes. We will also gather at Community Church at noon for a short service of Scripture and ashes. If you are interested in evening opportunities, Nichols-Bethel UMC and Calvary UMC Annapolis are both hosting 7:00 PM Ash Wednesday services.

Join us beginning Sunday March 1, 2020 for our new Lenten worship series.

It happened on perhaps the best day of his life—the day before the day Jesus would make the journey to the worst day of his life. Jesus and three of his disciples gathered on a high mountain where Jesus was transfigured right before their eyes. The voice of God spoke three thunderously piercing words into the minds and hearts of those disciples -“LISTEN TO HIM.” Those words now come to us -the present-day disciples of Jesus.

The forty days of Lent open up a journey from the top of Transfiguration Mountain to the bottom of the Valley of the Cross. This forty day journey, calls us to lean in and listen deeply to Jesus. As we do, we will find the way of the cross is the road to resurrection. Listen to Jesus—he calls from the lowest places to lift up those broken and left outside and he calls to the powerful and popular insiders that they will be laid low. He calls all to listen. Only some will. Will you?

On Good Friday, April 10, at 7:00 PM we will be hosting the Jews for Jesus group in sharing their Christ in the Passover presentation and worship experience. Christ in the Passover shows the link between the ancient Festival of Redemption and Christ as the Lamb of God—you will never forget it! This demonstration is visual, so you will actually see a table set with traditional Passover items. The speaker uses Scripture as well as the visual items to walk through a Jewish Passover Seder, weaving the story of the Exodus together with the life, death and resurrection of Christ.
