Lenten Journey Mosaic

 Lent invites us to walk with Jesus; as individuals and as a church community. 

To honor the duality of this journey, we invite you to help create a Lenten Journey Mosaic on the wall leading up to Parish Hall.

Add a Reflection or Prayer tile to the wall each week, or when the spirit moves you.  

Supplies & instructions can be found on the table at the base of the ramp.

Use of Face Masks in Church School

from the Faith Formation Ministry Team

A welcoming Church School is one where every child can engage and have fun; this means that we are often in close proximity to one another. For this reason, we recommend that children continue to wear masks in church school, however we will no longer require it. 


 We reserve the option, however, of asking church school participants (children and adults) to wear a mask if conditions change, or if for medical reasons, not wearing masks would be a barrier to a child's participation. In this situation masks will be provided.

Pop-up Nursery

Located in the Parlor, this space welcomes families with infants and young children who need an alternative setting for part or all of the service.

Our Pop Up Nursery offers a floor mat for little ones, a comfortable chair or rocker for caregivers, and live-stream access to the service.
