Ekklesia: Lenten Study Group!

Parents, there is an Ekklesia: Small Group Lenten Study for parents (led by Pam) and children (led by Michaela). This group meets at the church 4 Thursday evenings from 6-7:30pm. We begin each gathering with a shared meal then separate for an adult Bible study and a children's Bible program. PLEASE JOIN US. What a great opportunity to gather and deepen community bonds through shared faith experiences. If you need to miss a week, join us when you can.
Sign up below for the Thursday evening study group for parents and children/youth, or, if Thursdays don't work for you, sign up for one of the other Small Group Lenten Gatherings you see listed above.

Meals for Katie and Julian Clement!

Katie Clement has had her baby!
