Second Week of Lent at LUMC

Week of February 20, 2018 – In This Issue:
Crosses

SUNDAY FEBRUARY 25 – SECOND SUNDAY OF LENT*
“Finding Your Life”

Pastor Peggy Hillmon Preaching
Drama “Cross Emporium” at both services

For the first time in Mark’s gospel, Jesus reveals to his disciples what is ahead for him. After protest from Peter, Jesus reminds them all that finding our lives in him requires more than we are prepared to embrace. 

*
During the Lenten season, you might notice scarcity in the pomp and circumstance of worship – this is intentional as we contemplate this season of wandering in the wilderness, and what it means to follow Jesus with our lives. 

Operation Eden

OPERATION EDEN UPDATE
Restoring our property 

Operation Eden – Lenexa UMC’s Landscaping Campaign – officially launched a few weeks ago. The Property Management Team is looking forward to “sprucing” up the east side of our property. 

We are asking that all gifts be received by Palm Sunday – March 25, 2018 in order to allow the committee to plan accordingly.
