Lent and Holy Week

The season of Lent begins with Ash Wednesday on March 6! Lent is a season of penance before the celebration of Christ’s resurrection on Easter Sunday. It lasts for 40 days, not including Sundays, to match up with the 40 days that Jesus spend fasting in the wilderness after his baptism. We will mark this season in the wilderness with worship on Sunday mornings, special worship services at other times, and a book study on Wednesday nights. Please join us!

Sunday Mornings

Sunday morning worship will include the Retiring of the Alleluia on March 3, and a special Lenten practice on each Sunday until Easter Sunday on April 21.
