Lent Offerings for Cary Presbyterian

As the season of Lent draws near, our community of faith offers a variety of ways to pursue a deeper connection with God, others, and self. Worship and faith formation offerings are inspired by resources from the amazing folks at A Sanctified Art entitled "Full to the Brim: An Expansive Lent." Along with the various gatherings listed below, we hope that these at-home resources will be helpful as well.

Lenten Devotional

This amazing resource contains scripture, commentary, poetry, visual art, and written reflections. Look below for a weekly opportunity to connect with others over Zoom about the content of this devotional.

Daily Devotional Cards

These simple and easy to use daily devotional cards include a reminder/affirmation for building a daily rhythm of prayer.

Wellness Wheel

Use this self-reflection tool to reflect on where you are in your life and how you hope to grow throughout the Lenten Season.

Full to the Brim Spotify Playlist

This playlist, cultivated by A Sanctified Art, covers a wide range of genres, themes, and musical styles. May this serve as the soundtrack for your Lenten season.

Printed copies of the Lenten Devotional, Prayer Cards, and Wellness Wheel are available in the Narthex. Stay connected with the CPC App for devotionals, prayers, commentary, poetry, and art connected to the Full to the Brim resources.

Seeking the Good Life A Study of Virtue

Spiritual Formation Offerings

The Practice of Mindfulness with Jason Troiano

This class will meet in person, five times, on Thursday evenings, beginning on March 3rd, from 6:00-7:15 pm in the high school youth room. The classes will be informal and involve guided meditation practice, a brief talk of aspects of mindfulness practice, and time for conversation and fellowship. It is open to anyone who is curious about starting a meditation practice. If you are interested in attending, please email Jason at jjtroiano@yahoo.com.

Full to the Brim Art Installation

Visio Divina, latin for “divine seeing,” is a method of meditation, reflection, and prayer through a process of intentional seeing. We invite you to engage with pieces of art by various artists provided by A Sanctified Art. These will be displayed in worship, and will remain in the Sanctuary/Narthex, along with Artist Statements that provide theological reflections on their process creating these works. They can also be found in the Full to the Brim Lenten Devotional.

Labyrinth Walking

As the days grow longer and warmer, we invite you to walk the outdoor labyrinth on the church grounds. During Holy Week, the indoor labyrinth will also be available in the Fellowship Hall.

Offerings for Children and Families

Sunday Morning Classes (9:15-10:15 AM)

Regular Sunday morning classes for preschoolers and children will use the Follow Me curriculum called “Practice Spiritual Disciplines.” Children know well the desire and comfort of drawing near to someone they love and who loves them. They understand that sometimes this requires special effort on their part. This introduction to spiritual practices, focused on drawing near to God, lays a foundation for their own experience of keeping company with God. Practices include fasting, praying, listening to God, simplicity, unplugging and trying something new.

Faith Practices Book for Families

Families with young children will be provided with a copy of the Traci Smith book, Faithful Families For Lent, Easter and Resurrection. A few at-home practices will be highlighted as ways to connect things learned in Sunday morning classes and worship with home-life. 

Children's Time During Worship

This weekly offering will connect the children to a core affirmation tied to the Full the Brim weekly themes and will include bible stories and children’s books.
