Mid-Week Lenten Services
Lent is a six-week season for us to closely consider the depth of Jesus’ suffering and his sacrificial death to pay for the sins of the world and to save us. The Wednesdays provide an extra mid-week opportunity for us to ponder our Savior’s love and to worship him. For the remaining two Wednesdays, the service starts at 6:00 pm. Lenten suppers will be served each Wednesday from 5-5:45 pm.

Home Mission Project: Vans for Missions. Some of our mission congregations provide outreach programs that are poorly attended because of lack of transportation in their communities. This is especially true with our Native American missions and in other areas where public transportation does not exist. Currently, vans funded by this program are used by the Navajo Indians in Colorado and New Mexico, as well as missions in Fresno California, and Ontario Canada. Your gifts will assist congregations that need to purchase vans.
World Mission Project: Nepal Projects. This program is called “Milk for Nepal”. Our national leaders want to bring milk to the body and the milk of God’s Word to the soul. By teaching pastors the truths of God’s Word in greater depth in the seminary, they feed their own souls and feed the souls of their members. Monies are needed to establish a farm, purchase cows and other animals. Our national leaders hope to teach many skills on this farm as the men learn how to be a pastor.
