What to Expect in Worship
Purples, blacks, rough fabrics and melodic tunes. All the Traditional sounds and sights of Lent are a part of our worship experience this season. We see and read about Jesus on the cross. We tell the story with our Lenten banner and with our choir music. This is the season to reach down into the depths of your human experience and feel God’s mercy for your sin.
Make a Sacrifice
Seeing Jesus make the greatest sacrifice for us leads us to wonder what we can be doing for God that we have not been doing. The congregational ask is for an additional offering towards the Steeple Repair Fund. We are seeking a total of $35,000 to make repairs this Spring. The legacy of a well maintained building is not just for “us.” This building is about the future children and adults who want to worship and learn about Jesus.
Do a Mission
March 7 we will be serving at the Food Pantry in Elburn. We also are making sleeping mats out of plastic bags for a homeless ministry in Aurora.
LENTEN WORSHIP SERIES
A Transformative Journey with Jesus
In this holy season our walk with the Scriptures will recall the last week of Jesus’ life. This practice is from ancient Christianity when new Christians we trained in the deep meaning of the faith and given an opportunity on Easter to receive baptism and new life in Christ.
Our renewal begins with repentance. We will examine our sin and let God’s forgiveness take us to a new place.
Ash Wednesday and Good Friday will feature movies instead of liturgy. The February 14th event focuses on Jesus’ decision to be the suffering servant. The March 29th event walks through the whole life of Christ and ends in resurrection.
Come with your KUMC friends as we transform into beautiful believers.
