Ash Wednesday worship 6:30pm - Ashes and Communion - Lent series
Hi BSLC Family,
As we close out Epiphany, God the Father has revealed His Son to us through His Baptism and Transfiguration. Now, Jesus descends the mountain to head to Jerusalem to obediently fulfill His mission of salvation – yours and mine. We enter this Lenten season with the midweek series on the hands of the Passion beginning tomorrow evening.
We invite to you Ash Wednesday worship tomorrow evening at 6:30pm with the imposition of ashes and the celebration of Holy Communion. We have small viles of ashes for you if you are unable to attend.
PLEASE schedule a time with Pastor to pick up a vile of ashes and receive Communion – at church OR at your home.
Note: Ash Wednesday will be in-person worship. For the other Wednesdays, we will be live-streaming an evening meditation on the texts. You are certainly welcome to attend those too if you are in the area. We will keep you posted on how to watch these worship times together.
God bless and keep you!!!
Remember – it is not what one gives up but rather what Christ has given up for you.
We say goodbye to the Alleluia for a time but we can still praise God for Christ’s forgiveness and gift of life any day!
*** As always, please pray for your fellow brothers and sisters and if possible reach out to them in some way (card, call, email).
Do you have access to our Facebook page?
In support of the ministry in and through BSLC, please consider online giving through our BSLC website if you are unable to stop by for communion.
Please also click this link for the instructions to give by texting. It works through Give+ Mobile app.
Some people have been giving already through online bill pay at their own bank.
Feel free to call or email.
God bless and keep you!!!!
Jesus spent a lot of time with His disciples. He taught them, sang with them and prayed with them. He gave them the authority to forgive and retain sins. He commissioned them to enlarge the body of believers by His command to "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son and the Holy Spirit teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you." He led by example showing them that Gentiles (those outside the Jewish race/religion) are allowed into the kingdom.
Our task is two-fold. Our first task is to teach our people about Jesus and how He would have us live and witness to Him. We do this through corporate worship where Jesus invites us to His Table to be fed. He feeds us and washes us clean through His sacrifice on the cross. He is the lamb that was slain. He feeds us with living water and the bread of life. He feeds us with His body and His blood poured out for the forgiveness of our sins. We are also fed by His Word. We hear the Word in worship and study the Word in our various Bible Studies.
Once fed, our second task or command is to go and feed others. We do not perform miraculous healings or cast out demons in Jesus name but we do bring the healing Word of love and forgiveness in Jesus Christ. This Word is what people crave. In our brokenness as a fallen sinful human race, we need to know that there is life on the other side. We need to know that our Father will pick us up, brush us off and give us the biggest hug ever, all because He loves us more than we can humanly understand or imagine. So we reach out to people with the hands of Jesus. We help the sick and the hungry in Jesus name. We pray. We open our hearts. We listen. Through us, God brings His reign now giving us a sampling of what God’s reign will look like when Jesus comes again. This life is not a rose garden, but in Jesus, who bears us up in His arms, we step forth each day in faith and hope. Our mission is to be Christ to those around us. Our vision is to look with the eyes of Jesus upon those who need salvation in Him.
