This Wednesday, February 26th, is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of the Season of Lent. Lent's 40 days draw us back to Jesus' 40 days in the desert after His baptism by John.
During this period of solitude, Jesus confronted His temptations and emerged stronger in His conviction to be and to do what God intended.
Lent is our opportunity of introspection and examination. It is our chance to re-focus our lives and to give them a more profound spiritual grounding and direction.
The whole of the season is in front of us. This is our opportunity to make the most of it.
I invite you to journey with us at Hatfield Congregational Church. Please feel free to join us at worship, at Bible study or at our Lenten Discussions, the schedule of which is below.
A crucified Saviour is a daunting task to contemplate, but one well worth these coming 40 days.
Thank you to the Youth Group members and their families for this evening's Spaghetti Supper. They volunteered their time and even some of the ingredients.
Thank you also to Stop and Shop Supermarket in Northampton, Big Y Supermarket in Northampton, Hatfield Beef and the Texas Roadhouse Restaurant in Hadley for their very generous donations.
Thank you to Sue M. for her famous hot fudge sauce, and to Carol and Joann for taking care of dessert prep., and to all those who baked brownies for us.
The profits from this evening's supper will allow our young people to plan more activities, so thank you also to the 80 of you who supported our efforts this evening. Much appreciated.
