Latest News and Events

 

 

 

Lent began on Ash Wednesday, March 5.  For forty days we walk with Jesus through the wilderness toward the cross. Lent is a time of inward reflection, repentance, forgiveness, and spiritual preparation.  During Lent we think more deeply about what it means to be disciples of Jesus Christ, to be changed into his likeness, and to follow him step by step.  Lent culminates in Easter when we rejoice in Christ's resurrection and his victory over death.  Please join us for worship during this time and for our services during Holy Week leading to our special Easter worship celebrations.  Find a complete schedule here, and see the ways in which you can participate with us.
