THE LENTEN SEASON AT UNIVERSITY METHODIST 2017 We invite you to please join us during this Lent season to draw closer to your faith and closer to the church. If you have any questions about any of the following events taking place at UUMC during lent, please call the church office at 225-344-0343 and we will be glad to answer your questions!

ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICES – Join us on Wednesday, March 1st in the Fellowship Hall for one of our two Ash Wednesday Services, Noon or 6PM. During the service, the minister will lightly rub the sign of the cross with ashes onto the foreheads of worshipers, which signifies purification and sorrow for sins.

UUMC LENTEN CHALLENGE: #FEEDJUSTONE CAMPAIGN
– Every day, 125,000 people in  our community do not know where they will find their next meal. We are calling our church community to action again this Lent and asking you if you can’t feed millions, then #feedjustone. During Lent, every time you go to the grocery store, buy at least ONE food item to be donated to the HOPE Ministries Food Pantry. Pick up a reusable grocery bag in the Fellowship Hall and fill it- one item at a time- and bring it to UUMC each Sunday during Lent. All food will be delivered each week o the HOPE Ministries Food Pantry.

QUIET SPACES FOR LENT – The sanctuary at University UMC will be open mid week on Wednesdays, from 9am until 5pm for quiet and prayer in community. You may drop in for just a few minutes or stay all day for your own retreat. There will be music, weekly printed prayers and meditations, and an opportunity to let your soul rest.

LENTEN STUDY FOR 2017 – The Lenten season is around the corner! Join us for a light dinner and study on Sundays as we gather to discuss the book “Fully Awake and Truly Alive” by Rev. Jane Vennard. A light dinner will be served at 5:30pm, followed by a brief synopsis of the chapter for the week and a time of table discussion. To register, please visit our online sign up form on our website at www.universitymethodist.org/lent2017 or call the office to register at 344-0343.

WEEKLY HOLY COMMUNION –  Sunday, March 12 thru April 9, Holy Communion will be available each Sunday at 9:40 am in the Chapel. This will be a very brief service. Anyone is welcome to come and receive the bread and cup as a way of observing a holy Lent.
