Forgiveness Sunday at Central Baptist Church

Sep 10, 2018

An Annual Celebration of Love, Redemption, and Community

Welcome to Forgiveness Sunday at Central Baptist Church, where we gather as a community to commemorate and embrace the power of forgiveness, love, and redemption.

As a faith-based organization, Central Baptist Church firmly believes in the significance of forgiveness. Forgiveness Sunday holds a special place in our hearts as we come together to reflect on the teachings of Christ, seek forgiveness from one another, and experience the transformative power of God's grace.

The Meaning of Forgiveness Sunday

Forgiveness Sunday, also known as Cheesefare Sunday or Sunday of Forgiveness, marks the beginning of the Great Lent season in the Eastern Orthodox Christian faith. It precedes the 40-day period of fasting, prayer, and repentance leading up to Easter.

On this day, we cultivate a spirit of forgiveness and reconciliation, acknowledging our own shortcomings and seeking forgiveness from others. It is a time to mend relationships, heal wounds, and embrace the transformative power of forgiveness that leads us closer to God.

Join Our Community of Faith

At Central Baptist Church, we welcome everyone to join us in this annual celebration of Forgiveness Sunday. Regardless of your background, age, or beliefs, we invite you to experience the love and unity that permeates our community.

Throughout the day, you'll have the opportunity to participate in various activities designed to deepen your understanding of forgiveness and strengthen your relationship with God and others. These activities include:

  • Divine Liturgy: Join us for a special service led by our dedicated clergy, where we will come together in prayer and reflection.
  • Confession and Absolution: Experience the liberating power of confession as you seek forgiveness and receive absolution.
  • Forgiveness Vespers: Witness the sacred ritual of forgiveness, where we extend forgiveness to one another and receive it in return.
  • Community Feast: Share in a delicious communal meal, fostering fellowship and unity among our members.
  • Charitable Acts: Engage in acts of charity and service to those in need, embodying the spirit of forgiveness and compassion.
