Experience Lent in a Group

Would you like to join us as we experience Adam Hamilton's new book, The Walk, together? We are going through it as a church in many ways during Lent – we'll have a large class in the Foundry Hall and we'll have new small groups forming to discuss the book. Sign up for this six-week study through the five essential practices of the Christian life.

Ash Wednesday Worship

February 26: 7:30 am, 12 pm, 7 pm

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of  Lent, a time to prepare for Easter. The name “Ash Wednesday” comes from the medieval custom of marking with ashes the foreheads of those who show sorrow or regret for sin. For centuries Christians have found redemptive healing in this sacred act representing God’s great love and grace. Join us for music, prayer, scripture and time for reflection.

2018 Ash Wednesday

Breaking Bread with Jesus

March 1 – April 12, 2020

Luke records seven meals Jesus eats with others - Jesus clearly enjoyed eating! It was in breaking bread with others that Jesus taught about the Kingdom of God and revealed important things about himself. In the weeks leading to Easter, we'll explore these deeply meaningful stories. We’ll also share Holy Communion each weekend during worship as we rediscover our place at Jesus’ table and prepare to celebrate Easter.
