Special Events- Lent

Facing the Cross - TrinityUnited Methodist Church, Milford, OHLENT

Lent - is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. Lent comes from the Anglo Saxon word lencten, which means "spring." The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan.
Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection. In the early church, Lent was a time to prepare new converts for baptism. Today, Christians focus on their relationship with God, often choosing to give up something or to volunteer and give of themselves for others. Sundays in Lent are not counted in the forty days because each Sunday represents a "mini-Easter" and the reverent spirit of Lent is tempered with joyful anticipation of the Resurrection.

Lent begins with Ash Wednesday, which this year is March 5. Our Ash Wednesday service will be at 7:00 p.m., in the sanctuary.
This service will launch our Lenten series, “Facing the Cross”. Plan to start Lent well by coming to worship on Ash Wednesday.
Communion and the imposition of ashes will be offered.

April 13 - Palm Sunday

“Facing the Road” Troubles on the road of life is an issue we must face each day. Strategies can be learned from the Bible for dealing with troubles that confront us. Jesus said, "Come to me all who are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest." Because of Jesus and his sacrifice on the cross, we can face our troubles.

April 17 - Maundy Thursday - At 7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary

“Facing Denial” On that last night, denial was an issue Peter had to face. In the Bible we hear Jesus tell him, “Truly I say to you, that this very night, before a rooster crows, you will deny me three times.” At times we find ourselves in situations as well when we face the possibility of denying Jesus in our life. However, because of Jesus and his sacrifice on the cross, we can face denial and remain faithful.

April 18 - Good Friday - 7:00 p.m. service in the Sanctuary

“Facing Death” We must face the fact that none of us can escape death. In the Bible we are told that we all have sinned and “the wages of sin is death.” How do we face the inevitability of death? Because of Jesus and his sacrifice on the cross, we can face death with the faith that even in death we have victory and the promise of eternal life.

April 20 - EASTER - 8:15 a.m., 9:30 a.m., and 11:00 a.m.

"Facing the Future” What the future holds for us is an issue we must face each day. Strategies can be learned from the Bible to help us be forward-looking people. The author of Hebrews wrote, "...and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the sake of the joy that was set before him endured the cross..." Because of Jesus and his sacrifice on the cross, and his resurrection from the dead, we can face the future.

A daily Lenten Devotional guide will be available again this year for our Lenten journey. In “Crisscrossing Lent,” author Tim Wesemann relates ways in which we “cross” ourselves in Lent as we go this way and that in our busy lives. These unique reflections help us to explore times when our lives intersect with the lives of others, as well as when experiences we have today overlap references to Christ found in Scripture. This devotional can help us revisit our relationships and how we relate to Christ.
Also available will be a uniquely designed Lenten token that has the words of John 3:16 etched around the cutout of a cross. On our journey through Lent, this can serve as a daily hands-on reminder of the love and sacrifice of Christ and what that means for us.
