Announcements Week of March 18, 2018

Wednesdays in Lent – Fasting and evening Eucharist at 5:15pm: As a way of observing and walking through Lent together, we will meet at our Ministry Center for scripture reading and Holy Eucharist on Wednesday nights. To help us to humble ourselves in heart and mind, we invite you to fast from food, on these Wednesdays and to “break the fast” with Eucharist. These evenings will be roughly ½ hour.

Walk of witness and prayer vigil: Join us after the Maundy Thursday service for a one mile silent walk to the Ministry Center. For ease of transportation, if you are planning on participating please drop off your passengers at the library and park at the ministry center. We will have a shuttle to take you back to the library starting at 6:30pm. Sign up at the welcome table for an hour slot at the prayer vigil.

Easter Celebration: Easter is the biggest Christian party day of the year! Directly after worship, we will enjoy a large potluck-style party. Please bring food on a serving plate or dish with serving utensil. Please see suggested foods and sign up at the welcome table. Please bring enough for your dish to serve 8 to 10 people. 

Easter lily sign-up:  Help beautify our worship space on Easter and commemorate or honor a loved one. Lilies will be available to bring home after the service. To give an Easter Lily, turn in the Easter Lily form accompanied by $11 (per lily). Payments can be cash or check (made out to Incarnation Church).

Conversation and/or Confession during Lent: God often uses Lent to bring up things He wants us to examine, deal with, talk through, and confess to Him. Pastor James is eager and available to listen and converse about what God might be up to in you. Related to this, Confession is a tool or practice the Church has used for many centuries hundreds of years. The purpose is to confidentially share aloud, usually to a pastor, those things for which you need God’s forgiveness. The benefits of this include personal examination beforehand and also the assurance from hearing a human voice speak God’s love and forgiveness. Be in touch with James to talk more about this or to set up a time during Lent.: james@incarnationchurch.net or 757.561.5140.
