NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - On Ash Wednesday, February 10, Faith Lutheran Church in New Providence will begin the Lenten Season, a period of repentance and renewal, with three Eucharistic Services. A Spoken Eucharist, with the optional Imposition of Ashes, will occur at 6:45 am and again at 12:15 pm. Each of the two liturgies is about thirty minutes in length. A fully sung Eucharist, with the optional imposition of Ashes, will be held at 7:30 pm. At each of the services, the subject of the sermon will be “A New Compass for a Long Journey.”
During each subsequent Wednesday in Lent, Faith will conduct a spoken Eucharistic service at 6:45 am and at 12:15 pm, as well as an Evening Prayer and Eucharistic Service at 7:30 pm. The theme of the services will be “How Long O God.”
On Sunday, March 6, the services at 8:30 am and 11 am will include a special liturgy entitled “Music of the Jewish Tradition.”
Faith Lutheran conducts an open communion table. All visitors, who are baptized members of the Christian Church, are welcome to the Lord’s Table.
Beginning on Monday, February 15 and continuing each Monday through March 14, Rev. Dr. Murdoch MacPherson will conduct a Lenten Evening Bible Study regarding, “Luther, a Reluctant Revolutionary.” Since the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation will be celebrated in 2017, this class is especially relevant. Refreshments will be served.
