Ash Wednesday Worship - 3/6
Next Wednesday at 7:15 pm we will gather in worship to observe the start of the church season called Lent. The evening service will include the placing of ashes on the forehead of those who come forward as a visible sign of repentance and a desire for a changed life. It also reminds us that we were all formed by God from the dust of the earth and will one day return as found in the words of Genesis 3:19. The service will also celebrate Holy Communion, prayer and praise.
Mid-week Lenten Services
Mid-week Lenten Services using Prayer Around the Cross will begin Wednesday, March 13 at 7:30 pm. 'Prayer Around the Cross' is a meaningful devotional prayer service filled with music, scripture and silence.

Our large Lenten cross will be the focus of our worship. We will have times of music, scripture readings, and times of silence.

Come to me, all you who are weary and carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
