a prayerful lent — THE 4th WEEK IN LENT

THE 4th WEEK IN LENT

Beginning Sunday, March 26, 2017

PRAY  Gracious Father, you sent your Son, Jesus, to be bread and life for the whole world.  We ask you to give us more and more love for Jesus every day.  Amen.

READ  “I praise you, God!  You are like a marvelous king who wears beautiful, bright robes!  You make the water run in rivers, and the animals come for a drink.  You make the plants grow, and we have food to eat.  You open your hands and give us everything we need.”2 (Psalm 104)

SING

1. Communion Song     

God the Father, God the Spirit
God the gift  Incarnate Son,
Feed us now on grace and mercy
Feed us now and make us one

Feed us on the Bread of Heaven
Quench our thirst with Holy Wine
Cleanse us from all sin and darkness
Cleanse us now and make us Thine

Grant us peace and
Grant us wisdom
Grant us love and grace
Fill us with your
Holy Spirit
Come and fill this place

Feed our hearts and
Cleanse our minds and
Free our souls from sin
You have died and
You are risen
You will come again

These mysteries we believe
These gifts we now receive

DO  Doodle and draw a heart on your piece of paper.  As you work, tell God all that you love about him.

PRAY  Heavenly Father, you made us to love you.  Guard us from our enemies.  Help us to love and forgive them.  Help them to love you. Amen.

SING 

1. God I Look to You     

God I look to You, I won’t be overwhelmed
Give me vision to see things like You do
God I look to You, You’re where my help comes from
Give me wisdom; You know just what to do

I will love You Lord my strength
I will love You Lord my shield
I will love You Lord my rock forever
All my days I will love You God

Hallelujah our God reigns
Hallelujah our God reigns
Hallelujah our God reigns
forever All my days Hallelujah

DO  Draw a shape in the middle of your paper.  Inside the shape, write the name of a person who is hard to love right now.  Doodle and color as you talk to God about why it is hard to love that person right now.

APEX experiences the “ART” of giving up

 

APEX Youth Ministry Experiences the season of Lent through the "Art of Giving Up."

APEX Youth Ministry experiences the season of Lent through the “Art of Giving Up.”

Last weekend, APEX Middle and High School reviewed the concept of “incurvatus in se,” from the book “The Good of Giving Up,” by Aaron Damiani.  They were asked to embrace Lent as a time to cease focusing on our dependence on earthly desires and drives and instead to focus on the provisions and Grace made possible through dependence on God.

They were then asked to express (on a chalk board) through words and images what came to their hearts and minds as they meditated on the 40 day journey of Christ into the wilderness. With full knowledge that their work would be erased the following Sunday as a symbol of how our sins and bodies will be washed away and returned to dust (Genesis 3:19), this is what they came up with.  I encourage you to watch this video and view their expressions this Sunday, March 19th, in the upper narthex.  It will be washed following the 5pm services.

To volunteer for APEX or to have your child join middle or high school, please contact Isaiah Brooms at apex@restorationarlington.org.
