Ash Wednesday 

Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent by acknowledging our frailty and humanity. Ash Wednesday worship will be held at 7pm February 26 in the Sanctuary. Our pastors will also be available in the Sanctuary from 6:30-9:30am and 12-1pm for a come-and-go imposition of ashes.
Creation Care

How did you do on your carbon footprint survey? Don't panic. As an African proverb says, "Many little people, in many little places, taking many little steps, can change the face of the world." Click here for the full article.
Jesus was intentional in showing hospitality to strangers and friends alike. In the story of the footwashing he displays humility and gentleness. How are we being called to practice the modern equivalents of footwashing today?
