Bread for the Journey
Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday February 10 we will launch a Lenten Series entitled "Bread for the Journey". On Ash Wednesday we will offer the Imposition of Ashes and Holy Communion at 7:00 pm Each week we will celebrate with a different type of freshly baked bread.

Each Wednesday we will explore a multisensory Lenten experience. The first week February 17 we will explore "Welcome Bread" as our confirmands bring the story from Genesis 18:1-16 to life. We will use our Holden liturgy and conclude by celebrating the hospitality Abraham demonstrated to the three visitors with "Welcome Bread".

On Wednesday February 24 we will explore "Unleavened Bread" as our youth bring the story from Exodus 12:1-11 to life. We will use the Holden liturgy and conclude by celebrating the Institution of the Passover with "Unleavened Bread".

On Wednesday March 2 we will explore "Daily Bread" our as youth bring the story from Exodus 16:1-21 and Luke 11: 1-4 to life. We will use the Holden liturgy and conclude by joining our Hebrew ancestors in the wilderness receiving Manna and quail through "Daily Bread".

On Wednesday March 9 we will explore "More than Bread" as our youth bring the story from Deuteronomy 8:1-8 and Matthew 4:1-4 to life. As we continue the Holden liturgy and conclude by reminding ourselves that we cannot live by bread alone but by every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord we will share in "More than Bread".

Finally, on March 16 we will explore "Abundant Bread" as our youth bring to the life story from Mark 6:30-44. As we continue using the Holden liturgy we conclude with Institution of the Lords Supper.

Yours in Christ at Cross,

Pastor Sherry
