Ash Wednesday

Wednesday, March 6 • 7:00 pm

Join us Wednesday, March 6 as we begin the season of Lent with a special Ash Wednesday Service. At this service, we use ashes as a sign of our call to repent, as well as a sign of our mortality. The ashes are used to place the sign of the cross on the forehead of each person to remind ourselves of our need to repent and of our need for the forgiveness of Christ. Childcare will be provided during the service.

What is the Liturgical Calendar?

Wednesday, March 6 • 11:00 am

The Liturgical Calendar consists of a cycle of liturgical seasons and is used by the Methodist Church, the Roman Catholic Church, the Episcopal Church, the Anglican Church, the Reformed Church, the Lutheran Church, and other liturgical churches. It begins the first Sunday of Advent and presents the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, followed by the work of His Church. O.A.S.I.S. is offering a brief overview of the Liturgical Calendar, presented by the Rev. Lee Borden, on Wednesday, March 6 (Ash Wednesday) at 11:00, immediately after the O.A.S.I.S. “Reflections on the Lectionary Readings.” Come and learn more about the calendar and how it can be used to better appreciate the life and work of our Lord, as well as the “ordinary time,” in the works of His people. We will look at certain “holy days” and what they commemorate, various practices such as Lent, and the liturgical colors used for the different seasons. Everyone is welcome.

Lakeview Summer Camp

Faith UMC is going to Lakeview! Every summer, children and youth from the churches of our annual conference have the opportunity to go to camp at Lakeview Methodist Conference Center, located near Palestine, TX. Over the course of the week, campers not only get to play games and try new activities – they also get to grow in their faith through worship and Bible studies led by ministers and youth directors.

 

Lakeview is open to all students entering 3rd grade through and up, including graduating senior. Our district will be going to Lakeview June 9-14, 2019. Camp costs $400 per student, and registration is open through Monday, May 27.  Lakeview also provides scholarships for campers who want to attend but can’t afford the fee – families can apply for these directly through the camp. We also need adults to go as counselors! Faith will cover the cost of any adults who sign up to be a counselor for camp this year.


To find out more about Lakeview, you can talk to our youth director, Brandon Pigeon (brandon@faithumcspring.org), our children’s ministry director Debbie Shaw (debbie@faithumcspring.org), or our associate pastor Trey Burns (trey@faithumcspring.org), or you can visit https://lakeviewmcc.org/summer-camp/.
