PREPARING FOR LCC GATHERED – WEEK OF 2.22.15
This Week’s Message
After being snowed out a couple of weeks in a row, it will be great to worship together! We’re encouraging kids, 3yrs and up, to worship with their families in the auditorium this week. There will be childcare for children under 3 in the nursery. We’ll also have hot cocoa (with marshmallows…what’s hot cocoa without marshmallows, right?!?!) out in the lobby.
We’ll be back in the Gospel of John, with chapter 16, verses 4-15. You can read the whole passage, here.
“Yet even now,” declares the Lord,
“return to me with all your heart,
with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning;
and rend your hearts and not your garments.”
Return to the Lord your God,
for he is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love;
and he relents over disaster.
Who knows whether he will not turn and relent,
and leave a blessing behind him,
a grain offering and a drink offering
for the Lord your God?
“Just as we carefully prepare for big events in our personal lives, such as a wedding or commencement, Lent invites us to make our hearts ready for remembering Jesus’ passion and celebrating Jesus’ resurrection.” The Worship Sourcebook
