Return to God this Lent

Lent is the 40 day period before Easter when we examine our lives and hear God’s call to turn around and return.

Some people give up things during Lent, others take on a new practice. Whatever your practice, we hope you will do it in such a way that it will enable you to better follow Jesus.

We’ll be turning back toward God as a community and invite you to participate with us this Lent. Here are a few ways you can do that.

Ash Wednesday

This is what kicks it all off. We remember that we are dust and to dust we shall return – yet God chooses to love us. Come worship with us next Wednesday.

Wednesday, March 1 | 7:30 PM | Worship with Imposition of Ashes and Holy Communion

Daily Bible Readings and Reflections

Get them via Email or Facebook
Through Lent, you can receive bible readings with a brief reflection written by either Pastor Kate or Pastor Yvette in your email inbox. We’ll also be posting these on our Facebook page (facebook.com/flcarlington) if you’d rather skip the inbox.

Life’s Not Fair

Being Lutheran and Following Jesus – A Midweek Series
Join us for five weeks on Wednesday evenings beginning March 8 as we explore some of the core ideas of the Lutheran tradition. We’ll examine what it means to follow Jesus through a Lutheran lens; particularly how that looks as we learn to be faithful disciples 500 years after Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses. (If you have no idea what this means, that’s cool too – we’ll cover it!)

Each week we’ll meet to share a simple meal at 6:30 PM at the church. Around 7:00 PM we’ll break into small groups to consider Grace, Baptism, Scripture, Holy Communion, and Theology of the Cross. We’ll end our time together with prayer and a brief service of communion.

Are you interested, but not able to make it in person on Wednesday nights? We’ve got you covered! We’re looking to put together a small group that would meet over Google Hangouts (free live video chat) at a time that works for all in the group. You’ll have the same material and consider the same questions as we do at our Wednesday gatherings; you’ll just be getting together with your group in a different way.
