ash wednesday services/lunch

Receiving the imposition of ashes is a powerful way to confront our humanity and mortality.  They remind us that we are not God, but God’s good creation. In them we recognize that our bodies will not last forever and come face-to-face with the reality of our eventual death. Ashes also signify our sorrow for our sins.  When we participate in the service of ashes, we confront our sin.  We recognize our inability to live up to all God has created us to be and our need to be forgiven.

The Lenten Season at Noel

Ash Wednesday, February 14- Easter Sunday, April 1

Lent recalls times of wilderness and  wandering and stories of God calling people out of safety and into uncomfortable places, revealing paths they might never have chosen.  We too are called to walk a new path—one of humility, justice, and peace.  This Lent we are invited to consider the    challenging, beautiful life that comes with walking in Jesus’ way of grace.  Noel’s sermon series during this season is based on the book, “A Way Other Than our Own” by Walter Brueggeman.  You may order a copy for $12, through the church office, 221-5207.

Volunteer on Mission Saturdays! 

Mission Saturday is a great way for working adults and school age kids to volunteer at Noel’s Food Pantry.  The last Saturday of the month (unless a holiday), is when we’re asking groups of 4 or more to help out between 10am-12pm.  Even though the food pantry is closed on Saturdays, there’s always work to be done like stocking shelves, bagging food, and general clean-up.  To Sunday School classes, Scouts, home-schoolers and other organizations—come and join us!  Let us know a week in advance so we can schedule your group.  Contact Susan Foster at 424-0434 or sfoster@noelumc.org.
