February Sermon Series "Taking Care of Our Souls"
Join us Sundays in February to learn about how to take care of the most important part of you and me - our souls.
Sunday, February 2: Soul Care
Scripture: Psalm 42:1-4
We talk about what the soul is and what it needs. Watch it now.
Sunday, February 9: The Soul Needs an Anchor
Scripture: James 4:7-10
The soul is that tiny, fragile, vulnerable, most precious part of us. It needs to be cared for. We learned how it needs to be anchored in Christ, centered in God. Watch it now.
Sunday, February 16: The Soul Needs Rest
Scripture: Matthew 11:28-30
Rest enables us to find significance outside of performance. Resting is achievement meaning, a fruitful soul is a Sabbath-soul. Watch it now.
Sunday, February 23: The Soul Has Some Dark Nights
Scripture: Psalm 13:1-6
The soul is the deepest expression of a person; the soul is the place of greatest pain. We do not speak of the dark night of the mind, or the will, or even the spirit. Only the soul. The dark night of the soul. God works to change us not just through joy and light, but through confusion, disappointment, and loss. It’s not merely an experience of suffering. It is suffering in what feels like the silence of God. We will also talk about waiting in the dark.

Join us for Ash Wednesday
WHEN IS ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICE?
Join us for Ash Wednesday at HFUMC on February 26 at 7 pm in the sanctuary.
WHAT IS ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICE?
Each year, Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent. Often called the Day of Ashes, Ash Wednesday starts Lent by focusing the Christian’s heart on repentance and prayer, usually through personal and communal confession. The day includes a service where we recognize our mortality, repent of our sins, and return to our loving God. In our service, everyone is given the opportunity to confess their sins by writing them on flash paper and receiving the imposition of ashes on their forehead in the shape of a cross. We hang the flash paper on a cross and watch go up in flames as we set them ablaze. This represents how God, through the fire of the Holy Spirit, cleanses us when we confess our sins. Let’s experience this service together so we might hear the loving message of how we belong to Him.
