Ash Wednesday

     Covenant will not hold an Ash Wednesday service during the day this year. Please join us at the Lutheran Church of the Master, 860 Northfield Road, Bedford, at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 1.

Lenten Soup Suppers

    This year we will join again with the people of Lutheran Church of the Master during the Wednesday evenings of Lent for soup supper and worship with the Holden Evening Prayer, beginning March 8 and continuing through April 5.

    The mid-week Lenten observance begins at 6:00 p.m with the soup supper, followed by the Holden Evening Prayer at 6:45 p.m. The service will end at approximately 7:30 p.m.  Lutheran Church of the Covenant will host the first three Wednesdays. On the fourth and fifth Wednesdays, supper and worship will be at Lutheran Church of the Master, 860 Northfield Road, Bedford.

    The five Lenten mid-week soup supper and worship provide each of us with the opportunity for community fellowship with the people of our sister ELCA congregation and share with them the beauty and quiet time of the Holden Evening Prayer. These events will help us to prepare our minds and our hearts for the sacrifice of Christ’s life for our salvation that we observe during Holy Week. Members and visitors are welcome for supper and worship each of the five weeks.

    Lent is a time of prayer, service, and self-examination. During this time, many of us choose to live simpler lives, remembering those who do not have the food, money, or resources to simply live. During the Lenten Soup Suppers, we will remember those who are hungry and living in poverty this season. Why not join together for a meal and help fight hunger at the same time? Enjoy global cuisine while learning about the world and how gifts to ELCA World Hunger are making a difference. Instead of charging for the meal, LCC and COTM will collect donations to support ELCA World Hunger.
