 Lent and Easter

Once again, we prepare for the Season of Lent and the Celebration of Easter. In so doing, we are reminded that “Lent is the season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. The season is a preparation for celebrating Easter.” (The United Methodist Book of Worship) Ash Wednesday is February 14. Everyone is invited to our special Ash Wednesday Service as we enter into this Holy Season of self-examination and introspective reflection. We will observe Palm-Passion Sunday on March 25, followed by Holy Week. On April 1, we will gather together for the Celebration of Easter.


Our Lenten Revival will be during the first week of Lent. Our preacher for Monday, February 19 and Tuesday, February 20, will be the Reverend Betty Weaver. On Wednesday, February 21, our Revival will be led by the First United Methodist Church of Lucedale Praise Band. Each night of our Revival will include a meal at 5:30 and worship at 6:30.
