“I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of His resurrection and participation in His sufferings, becoming like Him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.” Philippians 3:10-11

The season of Lent began on February 14 and ends on the Saturday before Easter, March 30. Lent, a tradition from the early centuries of church history, is a season of preparation preceding the celebration of Easter, focused on repentance. Speaking biblically, to repent means to make a change in our attitudes, words, and lifestyle. Those who follow Jesus must learn that we must die before we rise. Beginning when we first trust Christ, and continuing throughout our lives, we turn more and more away from sin and self-centeredness and instead turn more and more to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Maundy Thursday Communion Service
March 28 / 7 PM  / Sanctuary
This service commemorates the night Jesus Christ instituted the Lord’s Supper, washed the disciples’ feet, prayed in the garden of Gethsemane, and was betrayed, arrested, and taken away for trial. Called Maundy Thursday, (from mandatum, the Latin origin of “mandate”) it refers to Christ’s mandate to serve one another, which He demonstrated by the washing of feet.  We gather to worship, to remember His work on the cross, to celebrate communion, and to respond to Christ’s mandate to serve each other. No nursery provided; children are welcome. An offering will be taken for the WEPC Deacon’s Fund.
