Lent Bible Study
‘Final Words from the Cross’ by Adam Hamilton
Wednesday, February 21st 7:00 pm, Common Ground Meeting Room
In life and in death, Jesus’ words were powerful and meaningful. Despite the serious effort and increased pain required for Jesus to speak as he hung on the cross, Jesus spoke seven “final words”—statements that have much to teach us about Jesus, his Father, and ourselves. This book study will run for 4 weeks beginning on Wednesday, February 21st and will follow the book ‘Final Words from the Cross’ by Adam Hamilton. The church office has copies available for purchase at $13 each or you can purchase one from most book suppliers.
Sign up in the Narthex! Contact the Church Office to purchase a book!

Palm Sunday recalls an event in The New Testament of Jesus entering into Jerusalem and being greeted by the people waving palm branches. It is a reminder of the welcoming of Jesus into our hearts and of our willingness to follow him. Palm Sunday is the start of Holy Week which ends on Easter.

Tenebrae – A Service of Shadows Cantata
March 29, 2024, 7:30pm
Emilie’s Sanctuary Choir and Friends will present the cantata Tenebrae-A Service of Shadows on Good Friday, March 29, 2024, at 7:30pm. Tenebrae is a service of shadows, depicting the final hours of Christ’s life on earth. Based on the ancient tradition of Tenebrae, the gradual extinguishing of candles produces increased shadows and ultimately darkness by the end of the service, symbolizing Christ’s death. Accompanied by piano and cello, this work promises to be a very meaningful underscore to our own person journey to the cross this Lenten season.

AHTN is in need of donations to help support their higher than normal numbers. Please see the post shared below for details on what is needed and how to donate.DONATIONS NEEDED!This season our Code Blue shelter is seeing higher guests numbers as the overnights have been much colder then the last few winters. With these higher guest numbers, our supplies at the shelter are running out quickly. Currently our BIGGEST need is of sweatpants, ALL sizes, both men & women. We are also always in need of handwarmers as guests are given these when they leave our shelter each morning. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated to us!
