I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.” Philippians 3:10

The season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 26, and ends on the Saturday before Easter, April 11. 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.

Ash Wednesday: WED, February 26 at 6:30 PM

This communion service will be an opportunity to worship God in light of the grace He gives His people to repent and trust Christ alone for our hope and salvation. Children are welcome, and a nursery will be provided. An offering will be taken for the WEPC Deacon’s Fund.

The Gospel and Race: THU, March 19, 7 - 9 PM

A talk by Pastor Stan Morton. The Gospel has the power to bring people together who are unlike each other, be it gender, class, culture or race.  How can we take part in releasing this power into a racially and culturally divided world?  What is a Biblical vision for cross-cultural living and diverse ministry?

 

Maundy Thursday Service: THU, April 9 at 7 PM

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.

There will be no nursery this evening, but children are welcome. An offering will be taken for the WEPC Deacon’s Fund.
