  • ASH WEDNESDAY - MARCH 1ST

    Lent is the somber season of

    repentance and reflection leading up

    to Easter that begins on Ash

    Wednesday, which is March 1st this

    year. We will join Christians around

    the world by having a cross of ashes

    drawn on our foreheads to symbolize our human

    mortality and frailty. Pastor Matthew will lead the 7 PM

    Ash Wednesday worship service which includes the

    imposition of ashes and Holy Communion. You may stop

    by the church from 10 AM through 4 PM that day to

    receive ashes from the pastoral staff if you are unable

    to attend evening worship.

    NEW FAITH WEDNESDAY SERIES BEGINS

    On Ash Wednesday, March 1st,

    Pastor Matthew will begin a six-week

    noontime Faith Wednesday study of

    Creed: What Christians Believe and

    Why by Adam Hamilton. The subject

    matter is in keeping with the ELCA’s

    emphasis on studying Luther’s Small

    Catechism in this 500th Anniversary of

    the Reformation.

    Each session will include a video introduction and

    discussion time. There may be copies of the book

    available at the Twinsburg Library, or you may order a

    book. The Wednesday evening study group will not meet

    during Lent but will discuss this book after Easter.

    THE SMALL CATECHISM AT MIDWEEK WORSHIP

    Each Wednesday from March 8th

    through April 5th, CtK will hold a brief

    Lenten worship service at 7 PM. The

    homily will be based on Luther’s Small

    Catechism, and services will include the Holden Evening

    Prayer liturgy, which many members find very inspiring.

    One usher is needed for each of these services, and

    there is an usher sign-up sheet on the bulletin board.

    SOUP & SANDWICH SUPPERS DURING LENT

    Join us at 6 PM every Wednesday from

    March 1st through April 5th for a Soup &

    Sandwich Supper. Diners are asked to

    sign up to bring a soup, sandwiches, or

    beverages. If you will be dining, please

    consider bringing food to share at the meals.

    CtK youth will set up, serve, and clean up each meal.

    On Ash Wednesday, March 1st, the Confirmation Youth

    are the kitchen helpers; on subsequent week`s, the

    youth going to the 2018 National Youth Gathering will

    work in the kitchen. The March 1st free will offering

    will defray the cost of Confirmation Camp, and the

    other weeks’ offerings will help fund the trip to

    Houston for the National Youth Gathering.

    DIRECTORY

  • From the CTK Minister of Discipleship and Youth

    WOMEN OF FAITH…. “They walked for six hours in darkness…” At dawn “Twenty-five fugitives hunkered down in a

    remote swamp… Morale was low. Deprived of food, wet, uncomfortable and exhausted…

    Suddenly one man stood up and declared it was too much: he had decided to take his chances

    and return to the plantation. A stout woman turned to face him, insisting that his return

    would compromise the entire party. When he refused to continue with the group, she

    stepped close to him, pulled a revolver from the folds of her dress, and aimed it at his head,

    hissing, ‘Move or die!’ The man complied, and less than a week later she led him across the

    border into Canada, a free man.”

    Thus the legend of one of the few slaves to be included in our history books grew. Harriet Tubman was born in

    early spring, 1822 as Araminta “Minty” Ross, on a plantation in Maryland. She worked as a housekeeper, a nanny, and

    a field hand where she sustained a severe blow to her head, suffering seizures and narcolepsy for the rest of her

    life.

    In September 1849, now married to John Tubman, a free black man, she fled with her two brothers. Her brothers

    got cold feet and returned to the plantation, but she forged ahead alone. “When I found I had crossed that line

    [into Pennsylvania, a free state] I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person. There was such a glory over

    everything; the sun came like gold through the trees, and over the fields, and I felt like I was in heaven.” Like

    most fugitive slaves, she changed her name to Harriet Tubman, the name that would carry through history to us

    today.

    Harriet soon realized that freedom didn’t necessarily guarantee happiness as she missed her family. She

    masterminded the escape of many, including several of her family, even after
