Wednesday Services
What the “Lent” is going on?
Lent can be a good break from life! Busyness, anxiety, responsibilities, alienation, or even the temptation to compare our lives to someone else can be overwhelming. In all honesty, this world likes to push us around and tell us we are less than. Thankfully, Jesus has come for all of us to know a different way of living and seeing the world from God’s perspective.
During the Wednesdays of Lent we will be focusing on the theme “Embodied.” A liberating way of integrating our thinking, actions, emotions, and spirituality to live for God. Plan to use the spiritual discipline of Lent to see how mind, body, heart and soul are called to be in-line with our daily thoughts and actions as Christians.
Embodied for Lent will take on many ways to feel deeply and have a sense of wholeness. Beyond our weekly livestreamed worship on Wednesdays (6:30pm), we have daily devotionals, coloring pages, discussion after worship and a host of other ways to connect. 
Join in, be made whole, and see God’s love come to life!
Confirmation Class Reminder For Lent: Through Lent we not be having formal class time with students, however the expectation is that students attend our virtual worship service. The service will be on Wednesday nights at 6:30pm livestreamed on Facebook (Feb 17, 24, Mar 3, 10, 17, 24). This will also be a great time to get worship notes completed - available through our online portal.
This year’s 4th grade Christian Education class is preparing for their first communion! Their classes will begin on Monday, March 1st. If you have a 4th, 5th, or 6th grader that is in need of communion instruction, please contact Susie and she will help you with registration.

Watch this weeks Faith in Our Homes video, Kayla reminds us a simple walk is a great way to reconnect and talk with God.
