The Lenten Season begins on February 14 with the observance of Ash Wednesday and will conclude with the celebration of the Resurrection on Sunday, April 1. During this time, our Lenten Services will be based on the Book of Job. The subject matter in the Book of Job is pertinent to our day and age, as our society struggles with the same issues and questions Job and his contemporaries struggled to understand.
Questions like:
Why do we suffer?  
Why do we worship God?  
How do we deal with many issue of life for which we have no answers?
Over the weeks of Lent we will gollow this schedule:
Ash Wednesday (February 14) “Flying Blind” (Job 1:1-12)
Lent 2 (February 21) “Sweet Surrender” (Job 1:13-21)
Lent 3 (February 28) “Learning to Lament” (Job 3:1-26)
Lent 4 (March 7) “It Is Enough” (Job 14:1-14)
Lent 5 (March 14) “Understanding How it all Works Together” (Job 23:1-17)
Lent 6 (March 21) “God Speaks in the Storm” (Job 38:1-11)
Maunday Thursday (March 29) “On Earth is not His Equal” (Job 41:20-34)
Good Friday (March 30) “Tearing Down the Spite House” (Job 42:7-9)
   
Beginning on February 11, the Sunday morning Bible Studies will feed into and support our midweek Lenten Services by exploring the theme and structure of the Book of Job. We will review the past midweek service, as we prepare for the upcoming Wednesday service. There will be two worship times for each midweek service, at 10:15 AM and 7:00 PM. The times of worship for Good Friday will vary slightly, with worship times at 1:00 PM and 7:00 PM.
