Lent is a time to journey with Jesus into the wilderness, to remember and recognize the part each of us plays in the brokenness of our world. A time to remember how to live, by following Jesus as he makes his way to the cross. A time to pray, asking for God’s mercy because time and time again we have failed to be the people embracing the abundant life He offers us.
Given the unrest of our lives, our world and our community, we invite you to experience a Season of Prayer as we wander into the wilderness together this Lent.
March 1 , Ash Wednesday , 7pm
Lent begins with a traditional Ash Wednesday service in the Sanctuary when we receive ashes, reminding us of our mortality and need for God.

Everyone from 0-100 is invited to the Fellowship Hall at 10:45am to explore how we can pray and listen to God.
