A worship offering for Ash Wednesday 2/17 Be There from the Beginning!

Join Pastor Heather for an informal Ash Wednesday service from the safety of your own home, available to watch all week long. She will guide you through the imposition of ashes. Don’t worry if you don’t have any ashes! The Pastor will help you use some homemade ashes using what you have on hand in the house. May this be a time of spiritual renewal for you as we enter into Lent. 

The season of Lent is an opportunity for us to re-align our internal compass with God, walking with Jesus to the cross and bearing witness to his resurrection glory. The 40 days of Lent is an invitation to let go of the things that keep us from having a close relationship with God and each other. 

This year, Wyoming’s commitment to reconciliation is demonstrated by our efforts to meet the urgent needs of our neighbors who are struggling during the pandemic. Instead of giving up something for Lent, we invite you to give to others. Reimagining Lent: 40 Days of Giving Back is a multi-faceted approach to observing the 6 weeks of Lent through the lens of mission.

SIGN UP for our Weekly Adult Ed discussions by Thursday February 18! (See page 2)

Martin Luther King Jr. said “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?” 

These past few days have shown how many in our community want to help others. Last Saturday on the lawn of Wyoming Church, we collected and sorted lots of food donations for Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges. Yesterday, on Martin Luther King Day,  everything was brought to the food pantry by our dedicated volunteers. ❤️

Thank you to everyone who came out to support the food drive and The Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges as they continue to provide food and other essential items to our food-insecure neighbors in Orange and East Orange.
