Lenten plans have been announced

Ash Wednesday Services

On Ash Wednesday, Feb. 26, Holy Eucharist, with the Imposition of Ashes, will be offered at 12:15 p.m. at Trinity Church and at 7:00 p.m. at Christ Church. All baptized Christians (including children) are expected to attend one of these services. This is why we offer it in both churches, and invite “cross-attendance” based not on location but on convenience to the worshiper’s schedule.

The Walk: Five Essential Practices for Christian Life

Hosted by Christ Church on behalf of both congregations

This Lent, you are invited to examine five essential spiritual practices that are rooted in Jesus’ own walk with God. Over four sessions, three on Sundays in Lent, the final one the Tuesday of Holy Week, we will explore how we walk with Christ: following him, growing in him, and faithfully serving him. In each session, Adam Hamilton’s engaging teaching style will help you explore one of these practices – each of which is intended to be a part of our daily walk with Christ – its New Testament foundation, and its potential effect on our personal lives and our lives together as the church. Each session except the last will begin with a soup and bread luncheon at 12 noon with the study following, from 12:30-2:00 p.m. The final session, to be held the Tuesday of Holy Week, will follow a Tenebrae service at 6:30 p.m. and will run from 7:15-8:45 p.m. We will decide as a group whether or not to include a soup supper for this special session. Our schedule is as follows: Sunday, March 1 Session 1 – Worship and Pray Sunday, March 8 Session 2 – Study and Serve Sunday, March 29 Session 3 – Give and Share Holy Tues., Apr. 7 Session 4 – The Practices From the Cross If you wish to order a copy of the accompanying book, The Walk by Adam Hamilton, you may sign up to do so on the soup and bread sign-up sheet to be posted in each church this weekend. The cost is $15.00, payable to your own church.

Life Transformed – The Way of Love in Lent

A Saturday Quiet Day hosted by Trinity Church on behalf of both congregations

This program reflects on the loving actions of God as recounted in the Easter Vigil readings. Together, we will walk through the depths of salvation history into the fullness of redemption. The Rev. Dr. Hillary Raining, rector of St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church in Gladwyne, Penn., introduces the themes being explored in four hour-long blocks. Join us Saturday, March 14 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the Narthex at Trinity Church.

“Celebrating Our World” coming to Christ Church in March

Program sponsors being sought to help underwrite the cost

On Sunday, March 22, we are excited to bring to Portsmouth the world-renowned pianist, Teresa Walters, to present her 2020 program, “Celebrating Our World,” which honors the world’s shared heritage and common humanity. Described by The New York Times as “one of the world’s most significant pianists” and “the international first lady of piano,” Teresa Walters’ mesmerizing performances on today’s international stages have earned worldwide praise. Last week, we asked for help with sponsors for this event. Thanks to your generosity, we fulfilled this need, so now we’re looking for volunteers to staff the ticket table and the CD sales table before the concert and at intermission. We might also consider supplementing these with a bake table for intermission refreshments. Meanwhile, tickets are now on sale, with publicity having gone out to a variety of media in the Seacoast area. If you would like a ticket, you can purchase one at the door at $15.00 each – or, adding a small service fee, you can purchase one in advance online at https://christchurchportsmouth.brownpapertickets.com. Net proceeds benefit our Capital Fund at Christ Church.
