This celebration will begin during the 10:00am service with reflective prayer and sermon for the Lenten Season. All in attendance will exit the service with the merriment of a New Orleans’s Jazz music and process to the fellowship hall for a free luncheon.
The attendees will begin the Lenten Reflection by literally donning a mask. This mask will represent the figurative mask that people wear. Pastor Dave Wasson will offer up a Lenten Reflection that will suggest that everyone take off their masks. These are the figurative masks of self-deception, self-control, as well as the literal masks people are wearing. The reflective prayer will ask people to lay down the things that keep them from connecting to God.
After the opening reflection the attendees will enjoy jazz music and partake in a traditional New Orleans’s meal of homemade gumbo, rice, French bread, coleslaw, Cajun chicken (catered by Popeye’s) and the meal will end with King’s cake shipped direct from Haydel’s Bakery in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Come reflect, enjoy some jazz music, make a mask and have a New Orlean's style lunch in preparation for Lent!
