Lenten Worship Services

Ash Wednesday

Service Times: 4:30 pm | 5:30 pm | 7:00 pm

Wednesdays, February 14 — with Holy Communion

Ash Wednesday is a deeply spiritual moment of truth. While the curse of sin ties us to the ashes of death, the mark of the Cross speaks powerfully of how, through Word and Sacrament, God provides the means for us to be united with Jesus, the One who experienced and overcame death for us. Worshiping Jesus on this day, we not only acknowledge our need for renewal, but we also express the confidence and peace that is ours as the children of God.

English Worship is held at 4:30 and 7:00 pm in the Sanctuary. Spanish Worship is held at 5:30 pm in the Sanctuary. All services will include Holy Communion and the Imposition of Ashes. A dinner will be served at 5:45 pm in the Family Life Center.

Midweek Lenten Worship

Service Times: 4:30 pm | 5:15 pm | 7:00 pm

Wednesdays, February 21 through March 21

On Wednesday evenings during the season of Lent, we have the opportunity to gather as the people of God to encourage one another in faith, to turn away from sin in repentance, and to lean on Christ, our Savior. In the weeks following Ash Wednesday, our mid-week Lenten themes focus on Timely Encounters. Each week we look at a key time when the Lord’s people encountered Him, discovering His deliverance, His promise, and His power. And as Scripture shows us: whenever God shows up, expect a change in the status quo.

English Worship is held at 4:30 and 7:00 pm in the Sanctuary. Spanish Worship is held at 5:15 pm in the Board Room. A dinner will be served each week at 5:45 pm in the Family Life Center.

Maundy Thursday

Service Times: 4:30 pm | 5:30 pm | 7:00 pm

Thursday, March 29 — with Holy Communion

Maundy Thursday, also known as Holy Thursday, is the day when Christians around the world remember the Last Supper—when Jesus and His disciples dined together for the last time before His death. It was on that night our Lord instituted the Sacrament of Holy Communion, and so we partake of His body and blood in both of our worship services.

English Worship is held at 4:30 and 7:00 pm in the Sanctuary. Spanish Worship is held at 5:30 pm in the Sanctuary.

Good Friday

Service Times: 4:30 pm | 5:30 pm | 7:00 pm

Friday, March 30

Good Friday commemorates the crucifixion and death of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our English services (4:30 and 7:00 pm) will focus on the last seven words of Christ from the Cross. Both services will follow a traditional Tenebrae (“service of darkness”) format and will include special music from the Parish Choir. Pr흐ncipe de Paz will worship at 5:30 pm.

English Worship is held at 4:30 and 7:00 pm in the Sanctuary. Spanish Worship is held at 5:30 pm in the Sanctuary.

Childcare will be provided in the Nursery during the 7:00 pm service.

What is Lent?

The season of Lent is a 40-day period of preparation for the celebration of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ on Easter Day. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, which falls on February 18 this year. The liturgy of the Church calls us to begin “a holy season of prayerful and penitential reflection,” when “our attention is especially directed to the holy sufferings and death of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

A common tradition for Christians is to give up something or try something new during Lent. This practice comes from the Lenten focus of “repentance” — to return to God and refocus our lives to be more in-line with Jesus. It’s like a 40-day trial run in changing your lifestyle and letting God change your heart. You might try one of these practices for Lent this year:


    Some people have been known to go without food for days! But that’s not the only way to fast in our earthly lives. You can fast by cutting out some of the things in your life that distract you from God. What do you need to let go of or “fast” from in order to focus on God? How can you simplify your life in terms of what you eat, drink, wear, or do?


Instead of, or in addition to, giving something up for Lent, some Christians take something on for Christ. Volunteering their time for good causes, collecting food for the less fortunate, helping a co-worker in need…the options are endless. Serving others is one of the many ways we can serve God.


    Lent is a time of intentional prayer. Our God invites us and wants us to pray to Him, so use this Lenten season to revamp your prayer life. Pray while you walk, while you drive (keep your eyes open), while you create something; pray at all times and in all circumstances.
