Wonderful Wednesday Begins Feb. 21


When is Lent? What does it have to do with us? The 40 days before Easter — beginning on Ash Wednesday and continuing until Easter…it is a time to prepare our hearts and minds for the holiest time in the Christian calendar.

It is a time to remember and experience what our Savior lived through in His ministry. A time to re-live the monumental Holy Week activities as we work to understand what this painful sacrifice means to us today.

It was an unbelievable time of Christ’s teaching of God’s forgiveness and steadfast love. At Trinity, we are trying diligently to comprehend its meaning and learn to use it to find the life God has planned for each of us in a five-week program called Wonderful Wednesday starting Feb. 21. Dinner will be at 5:30 p.m. and class will start at 6:30 followed by worship at 7:30. 

For the previous five years, Trinity has traveled together — children, youth, and adults — to the Holy Land to experience the exact places where Jesus’ ministry took him. This year, Trinity’s congregation will experience the Lenten time differently. We will take a journey not to the Holy Land, but instead a journey focused on comprehending the importance in each of our lives of the wonderful gifts God gave us with this painful end to Jesus’ life.  


No book is required…but a study guide will be available for you to read excerpts for discussion and record your thoughts and feeling as you discuss in small groups. 

No homework to prepare…but a scripture-based exercise for each day of Lent will be available for you to enhance your understanding and assist your growth in your personal relationship with Christ.

Join together with your Christian church family for a time of reflection and sharing. 


     Bestselling author and Pastor Max Lucado writes: “Every gift from God reveals his love, but no gift reveals his love more than the gifts of the cross. These gifts come wrapped not in paper, but in passion. They were not placed around a tree but around a cross. They were not covered in ribbons but sprinkled with the blood that Christ shed on our behalf. These were gifts that God didn’t have to give. The only required act for our salvation was the shedding of blood, yet God did so much more. So as we unwrap these gifts, we need to pause and listen for his voice.  As we do, we will hear him whisper, ‘I did it just for you!’”
