February 18   ::   Prepared (Hiking backpack)   ::   Matthew 4:1-11/Isaiah 40:28-31

The temptation in the desert was one of the most difficult and challenging times of Jesus’ life. He was prepared to face all that came his way. Are you ready to face difficult times? We will explore how we can get prepared to face our Lenten journey and be ready for whatever life may throw at us.

February 25   ::   Hit the Gym (Gym bag)   ::   John 3:1-17/Romans 12:1-2
Nicodemus experienced transformation when he came to Jesus. Jesus ministered to him and changed his live forever. When we come to Jesus we can be transformed as well; Jesus can change your life. We will discover how transformation is possible in and through Jesus.

March 4   ::   Dirty Laundry (Laundry sack)   ::   John 4:5-42/Exodus 17:1-7
When the women at the well met Jesus she expected him to condemn her. Instead she met a merciful and forgiving Savior. Jesus offered her living water. Jesus is still merciful and forgiving and he offers living water today. Are you thirsty?

March 11   ::   Picture Perfect (Camera bag)   ::   John 9:1-41/Mark 8:22-25
Jesus restored sight to a blind man. Jesus helped him no only to physically see, Jesus helped him to see the world in a new way through the lens of faith in Christ. How do you see the world? This Sunday we will focus on seeing the world through the lens of Jesus.

March 18   ::   Rise Up (Body bag)   ::   John 11:1-45/1 Kings 17:17-24
All hope was gone. Lazarus was dead and in the tomb. All was left was the grief. Then hope came, and Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead. Hope still comes to us today, and his name is Jesus.

March 25   ::   Celebration (Gift bag)   ::   Matthew 21:1-11/Psalm 118:22-29
There was a big party that happened when Jesus entered Jerusalem on Psalm Sunday. People brought all sorts to things for the celebration. What are you going to bring? We will focus on what we should bring to celebrate Jesus.

April 1   ::   Fools for God   ::   1 Corinthians 1:17-18
The world may say believing in the death and resurrection of Jesus is foolish. Christians are treated as fools. Yet, we know the real power of the cross and empty tomb. Come and be a fool for our risen Lord.

April 8   ::      ::   Nehemiah 8:10/2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Laughter was God’s idea. It is gift given to us for many reason; one such reason is to face hard times. Laugher helps give us an eternal perspective during the challenges of life. The joy of the Lord is truly our strength.

I was glad when they said unto me, 'Let us go into the house of the Lord.'

SUNDAY WORSHIP at 8:30 AM and 11:00 AM

At Charlton, we prefer not to use terms such as 'traditional' or 'contemporary'. We strive to provide worship experiences that are uplifting and inspirational, and reflect a variety of Christian traditions.  Our music is chosen based on the theme of the day, incorporating cherished hymns of the past as well as newer songs of praise.

In addition to our Sunday morning worship services, special services are held throughout the year as we celebrate holy days such as Advent, Christmas Eve, Lent, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday.

Nursery care for infants and toddlers is available on Sunday mornings from 8AM until Noon.  Charlton Church is a SAFE SANCTUARY, with policies in place to reduce the risk of child abuse.
