Lent 5, When I was… a prisoner

7D2_2061This year during Lent, Christ’s Church again took the opportunity to meditate on Matthew 25:35-46 (http://goo.gl/9axyDQ) in which Christ told his disciples that when they serve the naked, the hungry,the stranger, the sick or the imprisoned they were serving Christ, himself.

Today we heard Sean Pica of Hudson Link preach at our 8 & 10 am services, and then young and old decorated and put together bags of school supplies for the men who are enrolled in the Hudson Link for Higher Education in Prison program at Sing Sing.

(Oh, and we also squeezed in: choir rehearsals, Sunday School, 2 baptisms, Coffee Hour, and a rehearsal for next week’s Passion reading at the 11am Palm Sunday service!)

Next week is Palm Sunday- so don’t forget our special service schedule: 8am, 9am & 11am- more details here.
