Worship in MARCH

March snowstorms are no fun.  So don’t plan any.  March will start off lion-ey with celebrations galore!  We’ll begin with Transfiguration Sunday on the 2nd with a special dedication and celebration of “Glory to God”—our new Presbyterian Hymnal.  That will be followed closely by Ash Wednesday on March 5th (with a celebration of Holy Communion), and World Day of Prayer on March 7th and the First Sunday in Lent on March 9th (also with a celebration of Holy Communion). 

This year, Llanerch will again be offering a mid-week worship experience.  We’ll gather on Thursday evenings at 7pm for a specially-designed worship services with music, prayers, and scripture reflection and meditation using Lectio Divina.  This is a meditative way of approaching scripture, by reading/listening, followed by periods of reflection, either silent or guided, with opportunities for discussion.  We’re aiming for a kind of worship service Bible Study mash up.  Services will last about 45 minutes, and be designed to include times of silent reflection and discussion.  We’ll be meeting in the Fellowship Room. 

 

To borrow from one of my friends, “Navel gazing is for lint; Lent is something else.” (see the article later in the newsletter)  Lent, if you were to ask, is a season of contemplation, reflection, penitence, preparation, special meditation—leading up to Easter.  Some people practice lent by “giving up” certain things; other people practice lent by taking on additional spiritual disciplines or service to others.  The season is marked by changes in worship and a more intentional focus on Jesus journey toward the cross and resurrection.  Lent ends in the joyous reality of the Easter resurrection!

Mission Statement

See full size imageThe Presbyterian Church of Llanerch is an inclusive Christian community whose members have been: saved by God’s grace, united by God in Jesus Christ, and given by God as a light to the nations.

Our mission is patterned after the example of Jesus Christ, who came "not to be served but to serve."

To that end, we seek to think with the mind of Christ, to love with the heart of Christ, and to act as the Lord requires, doing justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with our God.

As those who trust God’s promise to be with us always, we are empowered by God’s Holy Spirit to praise God; preaching the Word, rejoicing through music, teaching the Holy Bible to young and old, bearing one another’s burdens, sharing in Christian fellowship, and proclaiming through word and deed the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
