Due to a brief power outage during the 9:00am service, we were unable to capture video of today’s  service, however we hope you will listen to the available audio recording of today’s bible verses and sermon.  Please note that the Old Testament Scripture lesson is missing the last couple of verses.  We hope the video recording of the full Sanctuary service will be back next week.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

On the 5th Sunday of Lent, we look at the face of Jesus that has to do with the spiritual discipline of fasting.  Rev. Schaefer began by sharing her adoption of the practice of fasting in her personal spiritual life.  Fasting, she pointed out, is a part of every major religion in the world, including, of course, Christianity.  So then why don’t we hear more about fasting if it’s so important?  Our modern lifestyle has a lot to do with that, which Rev. Schaefer explores with us.

Based on Psalm 51:1-17 and Matthew 6:1-6 & 16-21.
