Lent begins Ash Wednesday March 1st

   Lent is an opportunity to intentionally seek spiritual growth.  Each Wednesday during Lent we will gather in the Fellowship Hall for a light supper at 6:00 pm followed by a brief devotional study.  You will be given an opportunity to respond to the scripture selected for that evening.  Your involvement will be part of the worship appointments for Holy Week.

   Those same texts used Wednesday will be more fully explored that following Sunday during worship throughout Lent.   

   The sermons are drawn from key scriptures from the book of Matthew titled, The Great Adventure:

March 5th     Matthew 14: 13-21         How God Supplies Your Needs

March 12th   Matthew 14: 22-32         Learning To Live On A Higher Level

March 19th   Matthew 15: 1-20           Digging Deeper

March 26th  Matthew 16: 1-12            Who Do You Listen To?

April 2nd       Matthew 16: 13-20          A Declaration of Faith.

April 9th        Matthew 16: 21-28         Getting Straight About Discipleship

Please join us for worship on Maundy Thursday April 13th, 7:00pm when we will celebrate the Lord’s Supper and for Easter worship on April 16th at 10:30am.

SUNDAY MORNING PROGRAMS

 

* Sunday morning classes are held for youth Kindergarten through the 12th grade during worship.  

* Sunday morning Adult classes are held at 9:00am in the Fireside Room

* Nursery care is available throughout the morning for children under the age of four years. 

"Kids of the Kingdom"  [Elementary K - 4]

 Kids of the Kingdom is SJPC’s children’s program during worship services.  After the anthem, elementary aged kids head to class to pray, worship and learn together.  We provide Christ centered teaching in a way that help kids build foundations of faith as they begin to understand “the Big God Story” and how they are a part of much larger community of faith of past, present and future believers. Please join us for this fun, creative, God-centered class! This Fall we will be focusing on prayer, and specifically the Lord's Prayer. 

"The Mix"  [5th - 12th grade] 

The Mix (our youth) is designed for children grades five through high school.  This fall will be a year of transition and we will be focusing on finding ways to mentor to our youth and integrating them more into the life of the church.  Mix Sunday School classes and Youth activities will start on October 9th!  

* High school aged youth are encouraged to worship with their families in the service, however, the Mix will tailor the Sunday School Lesson for all those who choose to be involved.
