FROM OUR PASTOR
Wednesday, March 5, marks the beginning of Lent. At St. Paul UCC, we will honor this day with Ash Wednesday worship at 7:30 p.m.
The use of ashes for penitence dates back to at least the sixth century. However, it wasn’t until the 11th century when the Lenten season began with the marking of ashes upon the foreheads of Christians.
Traditionally, the ashes used each year are made from the palm branches of the previous Palm Sunday worship. Our confirmation class will burn and prepare the palms into ash for our upcoming worship service.
For the earliest Christians, as well as for us today, Lent’s six weeks offers us a “time out” to reflect on our faith, to add a spiritual discipline or two, and to prepare for the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ.
During Lent, I invite you to come home—come home to St. Paul UCC, come home to Christ, and come home to the Spirit that resides within.
PASTOR BECKY IS ON FACEBOOK!
Facebook is an excellent way to stay in touch with one another. It has three helpful features: wall postings, private Instant Message chatting, and private inbox messaging. St. Paul United Church of Christ has a Facebook page online that is updated weekly. Pastor Becky also has a Facebook page. You are invited to “like” the St. Paul UCC/New Bremen page and to “friend request” Pastor Becky.
If you have a joy or concern you would like lifted up in prayer, the Prayer Chain is ready and available. Please contact Pastor Becky at 419.953.1152 or email@example.com with your prayer request. You are also invited to join this growing ministry. All are welcome!
Sometimes prayers that weigh on our hearts and minds need to be expressed tangibly. A Prayer Tapestry is available in the sanctuary (near the refreshment table). You are invited to choose a ribbon or cloth from the basket that represents your prayer, weaving it into the tapestry. Together, our prayers are a thing of beauty!
