The season of Lent began with Ash Wednesday. Lent is a season of reflection and preparation leading us to Good Friday and Easter.

At Gale we have been holding special mid-week communion services, each Tuesday concluding on March 31st.  Beginning at 7 pm and lasting about 30 – 45 minutes, these meaningful and

non-traditional communion services will be another opportunity for us to enrich our walk with God. Come and join us in the chancel for these special services.

March 17th – Communion of pretzels
March 24th – A service of anointing
March 31st – Messiah in the Passover
(sign-up required)

On Tuesday March 31st we present Messiah in the Passover.
This is a meaningful portrait of   our redemption through Jesus as seen through the vehicle of the traditional Jewish Seder. It demonstrates how Christ fulfills the eternal plan of salvation for all and how he instituted the Communion at the last Passover he celebrated with his disciples. This event requires a sign-up in the narthex so estimate materials needed.
