Throughout the season of Lent at First Baptist Greensboro — through worship and preaching, service and study, prayer and community — we have the opportunity to more fully learn about ourselves. Beyond what we give up or what we take on, what if we claimed this season as a chance to deepen our identity as children of God and followers of Jesus? Join us throughout this season in all the ways listed below. In meeting ourselves throughout the season of Lent, we might arrive to Easter even more open and prepared to meet the risen Christ.
Sundays in Lent | February 26, March 5, 12, 19, and 26
Join us for the Sundays in Lent, for Bible Study and Worship. Our worship and preaching follows the lectionary passages from the Gospel of John. Through people like Nicodemus, the Samaritan Woman at the Well, and Lazarus, we encounter lives of faith that help us more fully understand our own.
Sunday Evenings | February 26, March 5, 12, 19, and 26
On Sunday evenings we meet ourselves through the experience of community, with music for children and youth, and opportunities for all ages. Our Sunday evenings this spring include our series of Congregational Roundtables — as we consider the past, present and future of our congregation. More here.
Lenten Vespers | Wednesdays March 1, 8, 15, 22, 29
Join us Wednesday evenings at 6:00 in the Chapel for worship and prayer. This weekly service includes contemplative music, reflection on our lectionary passage for the week, and prayers for the needs of our Congregation and wider community.
Holy Week begins with the celebration of Palm Sunday, complete with processional and palms. Join us for worship, and stay after for an Egg Hunt for our children and a Fellowship Meal for all ages. This year, we’ll host our first Palm Sunday parade outside after worship, complete with a special four-legged guest, reminding us how Jesus rode into Jerusalem.
