February 25, 2018 They Will Know The Lord

The latter verses of Psalm 22 declare that one day the whole world will know the Lord and praise his name. What is our role in making our God known to the world? As disciples? As a church? Will the world praise God’s name because of the lives we lead and the message we bring?  We’ll open God’s Word and address these questions during worship this Sunday. Let’s all come together to praise the Lord of all!

Our fifteen-strong mission team of men and women from VUMC and Aisle 7 will be heading to Florida this weekend for their week-long hurricane relief trip. Please keep them in your prayers!


Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins this year on Ash Wednesday (Feb. 14th) and ends on Holy Saturday (March 31st). Lent comes from the Anglo Saxon word lencten, which means “spring.” The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan and preparing to begin his ministry.

Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection. In the early church, Lent was a time to prepare new converts for baptism. Today, Christians focus on their relationship with God, often choosing to give up something or to volunteer and give of themselves for others.

Sundays in Lent are not counted in the forty days because each Sunday represents a “mini-Easter” and the reverent spirit of Lent is tempered with joyful anticipation of the Resurrection. (from
