St. Germain, Hoodsport’s “Church on the Hill,” observes Ash Wednesday at 5pm on February 14th.  Please join us – All are welcome – and stay after for a soup/supper gathering!  Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent.  Lent concludes on Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018.  Wednesday Soup/Study and Bible study sessions will take place throughout Lent.  

The liturgical color for Lent is Purple.  Purple is used for its symbolism of repentance and solemnity.  

Ash Wednesday by Carl Spitzweg: the end of Carnival

Ash Wednesday marks the start of a 40-day period which is an allusion to the separation of Jesus in the desert to fast and pray. During this time he was tempted. Matthew 4:1–11, Mark 1:12–13, and Luke 4:1–13.[84] The 40-day period of repentance is analogous to the 40 days during which Moses repented and fasted in response to the making of the Golden calf.                (Exo. 34:27–28)

  Each 10:30 am Sunday service is followed by an “all are welcome” coffee/fellowship time.  End-of-the-month “family potluck” meals take place on the last Sunday of each month — right after the Sunday service concludes.  You’re invited!

Men’s Monthly Breakfast:  2nd Tuesday of each month (2/13/18, 3/13/18, 4/10/18, etc.) at 9am at @ Little Creek CasinoAll men are welcome to enjoy morning fellowship and good food!

Women’s lunch takes place @ 1pm Friday, February 16th at Hoodsport’s El Puerto de Los Angeles Restaurant.
