February is always an exciting month!  We celebrate Holy Cross Lutheran Church as being a Reconciling Congregation and host the River City Mixed Chorus during our 9:30 a.m. Sunday service.  This year, our celebration is February 4.  It is always a fantastic time, and the RCMC is such a treat for us!  Make sure to join us afterward for a potluck.  Bring your favorite dish plus extra for our guests.

The season of Epiphany draws to a close as we observe Ash Wednesday on February 14.    At the 6:30 p.m. service, we will sing, meditate, and receive the sign of the cross on our foreheads: ashes to ashes, dust to dust. The Chancel Choir provides special music for the evening. 

Lent:  take the journey. Sundays during lent bring us a “a little bit of Easter” each week.  (When Pastor Heather first came to HCLC, one of her Sunday sermons during Lent mentioned that Sundays were a joyous day and not included in the 40 days of Lent.  I’ve always remembered that!) Our Chancel & Middle School/High School Ensemble, Carolon Choir, Sunday School Kids, Uke Choir, and Radical Ringers help us celebrate the Sundays during Lent.

Are you looking for a Lenten practice? Holden Evening Prayer on Wednesday evenings during Lent is a time to take a breath and relax through meditation, prayer, and song.  The Holden Evening Prayer happens Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m., February 21 through March 20 and for all ages. 

As always...

Musically yours,
