Lenten Worship

Join us for Ash Wednesday worship @ 6:30 PM on February 22, 2023. Then worship each Sunday in Lent starting February 26. Palm Sunday is April 2.

Easter Sunday is April 9.

If you, or someone you know, is unable to attend in-person worship or watch our livestream, we have created an in-home worship guide through the season of Lent. Click here to print a copy, or contact the church office and we will print and mail it out. 

The Gathering Worship & Study

Starting Wednesday, March 8, we will hold a 15-minute service on Wednesday nights after dinner. Following that will be study time based on the book, Why Easter Matters by Andy Stanley. Pick up a copy from the Small Group wall in the back of the Sanctuary.

The Gathering on Wednesdays nights during Lent will include Worship & Study. This is geared toward Confirmation students through adults. Confirmation will split off into their own group after worship. Kids are invited to join Anna, Janie, Louise, Marsha, and Jeani to learn about Jesus! 

Daily Devotions

Throughout this Lenten season, we invite you to spend some time in reflection. Download this daily devotional supplement written by Kate Bowler, author of The Lives We Actually Have: 100 Blessings for Imperfect Days. Pick up the book for a richer and deeper experience.
