SEEKING: HONEST QUESTIONS FOR DEEPER FAITH This year we are focusing on the theme of Seeking as we follow stories of folks who came to Jesus seeking something. As we move through the weeks of Lent, we’ll be exploring the questions people brought to Jesus and the questions we ourselves bring to worship.
We, the worship leaders here at Rose City Park Presbyterian, hope that this season will help us unpack some of those big questions in ways that are honest, safe and fruitful ultimately drawing us more deeply into the heart of God. We hope you’ll join us on the journey through the many offerings that will be available during this time.
- Ash Wednesday is the threshold through which we enter Lent. We’ll worship together Wednesday, February 22, at 7pm (in the Sanctuary and on YouTube) with communion and the imposition of ashes.
- Sunday, February 26 and following we’ll continue our journey in Sunday worship, 10am (in the Sanctuary and on YouTube) to explore our theme of seeking with communion each week.
- As always we’ll invite kids to go with us on along the Way. Sunday School lessons will track with the scriptures and stories we explore in each week’s sermon and there will be special Children’s bulletins.
- Personal Lenten Devotional booklets and prayer cards are available. These will include daily reflections, songs and prayers that can accompany each of us on the journey through Lent, so be sure to pick up one or both or let the office know if you’d like one mailed to you.
- Compline will continue on Mondays at 8pm on Zoom as we experience contemplative practice together and continue ourdiscussion of Richard Rohr’s Falling Upward. Zoom Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84275785844
- Beginning on Feb. 27 and continuing March 7 and 14, Tim Winslea,Nurse Theologian of the Presbyterian Urban Network will be leading a time of sharing our health journeys and bringing them into conversation with our faith. You are welcome and encouraged to come into this safe space to share what’s on your heart. 7 pm on Zoom:
• Our Lenten Book Study will meet the first four Wednesdays in March (March 1,8,15,23) at noon in the church library (also on Zoom) to discuss Psalms for Black Lives: Reflections for the Work of Liberation by Andrew Wilkes and Gabby Cudjoe–Wilkes. All are welcome to bring a sack lunch and prepare for some difficult but important discussions about our anti–racism work.
