Those He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son. – Romans 8:29

The season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 6, and ends on the Saturday before Easter, April 20. Lent, a tradition from the early centuries of church history, is a season of preparation preceding the celebration of Easter, focused on repentance. Speaking biblically, to repent means to make a change in our attitudes, words, and lifestyle. Beginning when we first trust Christ, and continuing throughout our lives, we turn more and more away from sin and self-centeredness and instead turn more and more to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Maundy Thursday Service: THU, April 18 at 7 PM

"Take. Eat." Matthew 26:26

This service commemorates the night Jesus Christ instituted the Lord’s Supper, washed the disciples’ feet, prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane, and was betrayed, arrested, and taken away for trial. Called Maundy Thursday, (from mandatum, the Latin origin of “mandate”) it refers to Christ’s mandate to serve one another, which He demonstrated by the washing of feet. We gather to worship, to remember His work on the Cross, to celebrate communion, and to respond to Christ’s mandate to serve each other. There will be no nursery this evening, but children are welcome. An offering will be taken for the WEPC Deacon’s Fund.

 

Good Friday Service: FRI, April 19 at 7 PM

"It is finished." John 19:30

We encourage individuals and families to use this day to pray and reflect on the significance of Christ’s life, death, and resurrection. This service of corporate prayer, Scripture reading, confession, and celebration of the Lord’s death helps us to consider and respond to the crucifixion and atonement of Jesus Christ for us. There will be no nursery this evening, but children are welcome. An offering will be taken for the WEPC Deacon’s Fund.

 

Easter Sunday: SUN, April 21 at 9 AM and 10:30 AM

"O death, where is your victory?"
I Corinthians 15:55

Join us as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior!
