Join us for Lent! This special time of year calls us to greater self-discipline in our piety and service as we prepare our hearts for the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I hope you’ll make plans to join in on as many of the following opportunities as possible!
We look forward to seeing you at church!
Call to Discipline: Give Up Time
This year, we’ll be taking time to practice sabbath together. More than just Sunday worship, sabbath rest calls on us to cease work for a time so that we may discover our true identity in God and not in productivity. To learn more, stay up to date with sermons from February 26 through the end of March.
Combined Sunday School
Each Sunday of Lent, starting March 1, we’ll have the opportunity to learn a new way of approaching scripture. This method teaches how to hear and experience God through the reading and hearing of scripture.
This is a special opportunity and I hope you’ll plan to join, even if you do not regularly attend Sunday School. You are sure to be blessed and experience a deepening of your relationship with God through these five weeks.
Special Service Dates
Ash Wednesday | February 26, 2020 at 6:00 p.m., Soup Supper to follow immediately | Nursery Provided
A traditional Ash Wednesday service including a brief sermon, hymn singing, and the imposition of ashes as we remind ourselves of our humanity and thus our need for God. Join us for our annual soup supper leading up to the service in the social hall.
Palm Sunday | Sunday, April 5 at 8:45 or 11:00 a.m.
Our traditional celebration of Jesus’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem. The children of our church will help us by leading a processional waving palm branches. Join us!
A Service of Tenebrae | Maundy Thursday, April 9, at 6:00 p.m. or Good Friday, April 10, at 12:30 p.m. | Nursery Provided on Thursday
This service walks us through, in powerful fashion, the story of the crucifixion. It calls to mind all that Jesus went through for us, preparing our hearts for the glory that awaits on Easter Sunday. This service will be the same at both times; simply pick the one that best works for your schedule.
Easter Egg Hunt | Saturday, April 11, at 11:00 a.m.
An annual tradition at Trinity Oaks! Bring some food to share, drop off filled eggs at the church office prior to Saturday, and bring your family and friends as we have a festive time together.
Easter | Sunday, April 12, at 8:45 a.m. or 11:00 a.m.
Join us for a festive celebration of our risen savior at either of our regularly scheduled services. Come early, as there will be limited seating for both.
