Lent 2015

The image above is a reproduction of the cover of the Lenten Devotional book produced by the Still Speaking Writers Group of the United Church of Christ.  There are a few copies available for personal use at the church.  Please feel free to take a copy with you.

Lent is a time of soul-searching and reviewing out life in relationship to our faith.  Lent calls us to a time of repentance and reflection as we see ourselves in light of who God has called us to be.  Please plan to join us each Sunday during Lent at 9:30 a.m. as we seek ways to both examine our living and then put into practice our faith.  Each Sunday service will have a time for confession and renewal as well as a call to action in our living out of our days.  

Special Lenten services will be held on Wednesdays, March 11, March 18, and March 25 with featured guest speaker The Rev. Ms. Becky Davis.  Our liturgy will give time for reflection and the message will focus on economic justice in our lives.  Join us on those three Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m.

Thursday, April 2 will be our Maundy Thursday service at 7:00 p.m..  Communion will be celebrated and a service of remembrance of the movement from light to dark as we prepared for the events of Good Friday and Jesus on the Cross.
