THE SEASON OF LENT IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!
This year the theme of Lent will be "LET THERE BE LIGHT". We will focus on
how the light of God shines through all of the darkness in our lives even
through times like this. Here's the schedule and what you need to know:
Transfiguration Sunday, February 14th
Guest preacher: Krista Kilgas the current director of the Urban Servant
Corps will preach to warm us up for the Lent season.
Saturday, February 13th, 2:30 PM to 4:30 PM
Communion and Ashes in the parking lot. The ashes will be in a take home
container so you can use them while you watch the service on Ash
Wednesday. WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE YOUR EYES!!! Please wear a mask as
you drive up.
February 17th 2:00pm-4:30pm (Ash Wednesday)
Eucharist and ashes in the parking lot that day. The Ash Wednesday worship

We invite you and your family to use the Coffee Hour link to join us for virtual Soup Suppers. Your Lent bag will contain a soup mix from Women's Bean Project. The rest of the weeks we hope you'll make soup and join us. The dates are February 24, March 3, 10, 17, and 24. At 7:00 PM the live stream of Holden Evening Prayer will be on Facebook Live. Each week as part of the worship we will hear a short meditation from a different volunteer from the Urban Servant Corps here in Denver.
Watch your March emails for the schedule for Holy Week and Easter. Palm Sunday is March 28th. Maundy Thursday April 1st (this is not an April Fools joke), Good Friday April 2nd and Easter Sunday is April 4th. We are really hoping to be able to offer and outdoor Easter Sunday service, or if weather is a problem we will have some kind of drive up.

no reading for this first meeting, but we will discuss
our stories, and start to look at immigration and the
bible. For those who would like to get a head start
on reading for our second meeting. We will read the

Our kids are growing up so fast! In fact they're changing while we've all been worshipping at home. Please send in new, updated pictures of your kids so we can include them in our Sunday worship, You can send your pictures to Kate at email@example.com.
During the season of Advent and Christmas, we tried something new. We asked you to do the prayers, readings, or share special music. We are hoping to continue this until we can meet again. If you are willing to help us out, all you need is your phone. If you do not want to be in the video, you may also send an audio file and we can add images and video. Please, send an email to Vicar Paul and we will work with you.
