Join us for the 2012 Season of Lent at The Presbyterian Church in Westfield!
- Name: Lent 2012
- Occasion: Holy Week
The Lent season kicked off on Wednesday, February 22 with identical Ash Wednesday worship services (with the imposition of ashes) being offered at 12:00 p.m. and again
at 8:00 p.m. This was a wonderful start for all to take this first step in their Lenten journey!
Tuesday Evening Prayer Services are back at 7:00 p.m. in the chapel. These brief meditative services include Holy Communion and will only enrich your Lenten experience. All are welcome to the chapel on March
6, 13, 20, & 27.
Messages of inspiration and special music will highlight
Holy Week worship services at the Presbyterian Church in Westfield, located at 140 Mountain Ave. The Rev. Dr. Ray Roberts, senior pastor, and Kathleen Connolly, Interim Director of Music and Organist have prepared a varied program that will be of interest to adults, young people and children.
On Palm Sunday, April 1, there will be two services: at 8
a.m. in chapel, located in the Parish House, the building behind the church, and at 10:00 a.m. in the church Sanctuary. There will be an Easter egg Hunt on the front lawn for the Sunday school students after the 10:00 a.m. Service.
The communion service for Maundy Thursday, April 5, will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary and include communion and featuring the church's Chancel Choir. Two services will be held on Good Friday, April 6: "Nails of
the Cross" at noon in the chapel and the Choir will lead a Tenebrae service at 7:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary. This is a wonderful time to pause and reflect on the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our Lenten journey comes to celebratory close with the resurrection of Christ on Easter Sunday, April 8th. Easter services are at 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary. Whether you worship alone, or with your family or with friends, everyone is welcome to all services.
