The Lenten Season begins on Wednesday, March 5, with services at noon or at 6:15 p.m. That first Wednesday is Ash Wednesday and the service will include Holy Communion. Our theme this Lent is "Cross-Words" - each of the seven things Jesus says from the cross. The first is"Father, forgive them." Most services are less than 45 minutes, allowing familes to be home at an early hour.
Each Wednesday will also have dinner for families to meet and eat from 5-6 p.m. The first dinner is chili-mac, cornbread, salad, etc.
Make worship a Lenten habit this Spring as we prepare for Holy Week and the coming Easter season.
