Each Wednesday during Lent, we are continuing to have a simple soup meal from 6:15 to 6:45 PM, followed by a presentation from Pastor Paula on a faith related issue from 6:45 to 7:15 PM. This week the “Mark of Discipleship” will be Prayer: The practice of personal spirituality through personal prayer on a daily basis, including praying for staff, leadership, members and ministers of Emanuel.
This year, in addition to coming to worship during Lent, we are also encouraged to live out our faith through concrete acts of giving. Each week, there will be a “faith action” opportunity, where we will be invited to provide a needed item for area residents. These items, selected in consultation with Hands on Hartford, will be distributed by Hands on Hartford. Plastic bins for collecting these items are in Luther Hall and in the Narthex next to the name tags.
There is a Special Lenten Service each Thursday during Lent at 11:15 AM following Bible Study.
