Amazing Grace – Theme for Lent 2023

In honor of the 250th anniversary of the writing of “Amazing Grace,”
this worship series for Lent by theologian Michael Hoy ties the words of the
beloved song to our lives today as Christ’s disciples. Those in the Bible who
experienced the amazing grace of God help us each week to realize that
though we once were lost in sin, we now have been found by Jesus, and
though we once were blind to God’s mercy, we now can see his love at
work in us through our Savior’s death and resurrection.

We will be offering services each Wednesday beginning on Wednesday,
February 22nd at 11 AM and 7:30 PM with soup and salad offered before
each evening service beginning at 6:30 PM.

Ash Wednesday, February 22nd. There will be 3 opportunities offered. In
the morning, Pastor Rosy will administer ashes and prayer in a drive-thru
style, from 7AM-9 AM, in the lower parking lot. At 11 AM and 7:30 PM there
will be a Traditional worship service with communion.

Our Ash Wednesday theme is David, based on Psalm 51:1. Soup and Salad
supper begins at 6:30 PM.

We find comfort that King David confessed his sins to God and received
amazing grace in God’s forgiveness and a connection to Jesus, the Savior.

March 1-Week 1 • Isaiah of Babylon (Isaiah 6:7): We see God’s amazing grace at
work in the life of the prophet Isaiah, who proclaimed to God’s people the
salvation that was to come through the Suffering Servant.

March 8-Week 2 • The Prodigal Son (Luke 15:32): We hear of the great love of a
father who lavished amazing grace upon the Prodigal Son, a picture of our
Heavenly Father’s lavish compassion toward us.

March 15-Week 3 • The Woman at the Well (John 4:13-14): We listen to Jesus teach
a woman at the well of his amazing grace poured out for us abundantly,
which satisfies our thirsting souls for all eternity.

March 21-Week 4 • The Blind Man (John 9:24): We witness Jesus bringing sight to a
man born blind, giving the man the added spiritual vision to see the amazing
grace of God found in Jesus, who heals us all.

March 29-Week 5 • Paul (1 Timothy 1:15): We marvel at the story of amazing grace in
the life of Paul, who turned from persecutor of Christ to proclaimer of our
Lord through the mighty power of the Holy Spirit.
