This week, the fifth Sunday in Lent, worship will include the Sacrament of Holy Communion and the final sermon in the series “Clay Jars.” In this series, we hold on to the promise that God’s love is at work in us and through us as a treasure in clay jars.
This Sunday’s reading comes from Mark 12:41-44; 14:22-25 and the sermon “Clay Jars: Cracked and Broken.”
Mark’s Gospel says the poor widow “gives all she has to live on.” Jesus noticed. Sacrificial giving matters.
Rev. David J. Hanna will be preaching.
Following the service we welcome all to join us in the Chalice Room next to the Sanctuary for refreshments and fellowship.
The season of Lent is a time of prayer, fasting and self-examination in preparation for the celebration of the resurrection of the Lord at Easter. It is a period of 40 days — like the flood of Genesis, Moses’ sojourn at Mount Sinai, Elijah’s journey to Mount Horeb, Jonah’s call to Ninevah to repent and Jesus’ time of testing in the wilderness.

About Worship at Calvary
We welcome newcomers and visitors to join us for worship, which is traditional in style and contemporary in spirit, friendly and graciously welcoming, relaxed and engaging. The service includes contributions from members and clergy alike who lead us in a weekly expression of our faith with warm greetings, fine music, a children’s talk and sermons aimed at helping us understand how the teachings of the Bible can be applied to our lives today.
We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
