The Church Office and campus is closed today, Wednesday, March 21st due to inclement weather.
Please join us for Palm/Passion Sunday. The Reverend Paul L. Rhebergen will be preaching. The Lectionary for Sunday will be John 19:16b-22 and Psalm 24.
Pastor Paul, Minister Liz, and Seminarian Lisa and Holly will lead the fifth part of a Lenten series that will invite participants into a deep exploration and experience of the Lenten scriptures and text. Each Sunday during Lent, the preacher of the day will provide a route to respond to the morning’s sermon, to delve more deeply into the gospel story of the day, to learn the thought and process used to develop the sermon. Each week we will be asking “Where does this text, and the message heard in worship meet us, and where might it lead us in our own life and in the practice of our faith?”
The Lenten Challenge “Feed the Sheep” is the challenge for this Lenten season. We will be gathering 100 bags of food to be given to our local food pantries. Pick up a shopping bag with the list of items to be gathered, fill it with your choice of items, and bring it to the church.
During this Lenten Season, we have turned the Alcove of our Worship Space into a Lenten Spiritual Center. It will be available whenever the Fellowship Hall is open, or by calling Church Office. Behind the temporary wall that has been placed along the back of our Worship Space, you will find a Spiritual Learning Space for each of our Sunday’s in Lent. A new table will be added each week. Come walk the labyrinth.
Maundy Thursday services will take place at West Trenton Presbyterian Church. An Agape Meal will be offered at 6:00 p.m. and a Tennebrae service with the Sacrament of the Lord’s supper at 7:00 p.m.
On Good Friday the doors to our Worship Space will be open from noon until to 9:00 p.m. for any wishing to stop by for a time of reflection, reading Scripture, and prayer.
The Great Vigil of Easter will be held at Abiding Presence Lutheran Church on Saturday, March 31st at 5:30 p.m.
The Deacons will be hosting the Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday immediately following worship. All are welcome.
