Midweek Advent and Lent Suppers
We have potluck soup / sandwich / dessert suppers in the church basement after Wednesday evening services in Advent and Lent. Advent is the season of Christmas preparation of 4 weeks before December 25th. Lent, beginning with Ash Wednesday, is 7 weeks before Easter (with no Wednesday service during the week just before Easter.)
Since 1990, Family of Christ has held the Seder Supper (what Jesus celebrated ‘the night he was betrayed’) on the Thursday before Easter. Instructions will be available for family participation. Through it we gain a rich understanding of Holy Communion. Reserve the Thursday before Easter. This is usually held at the Lutheran Center at the UNK campus – set up is at 6 p.m. / 6:30 p.m. supper.
Our annual opportunity to gather around a Stewardship focus. Since 1999, we’ve had a Wednesday evening in November in a shared potluck meal. In 2006 we entered a theme of Ya Gotta Have Heart, encouraging us to grow in our tithing over the next 10 years.
