The Weeks of Lent

This year, our focus in worship turns towards the Lord’s Prayer
and what it proclaims to us about  our faith and life.
The five themes for Sunday Worship are:

“Our Father”
“Your name be holy”
“Your will be done”
As we forgive
Lead us not into temptation

Sunday Soup

A simple Lenten lunch with fellowship,
conversation about the weekly theme:

Listening Well
Speaking Truly
Seeing Clearly
Acting Kindly
Walking Together

Daily Devotions

Materials for the season will be handed out at the beginning of Lent.
You can follow the devotions on the church website and our Lent Blog.

Acts of Kindness

Along with worship, prayer and study, some of the important Lenten disciplines are acts of kindness and sharing with those in need. We offer these opportunities for our life together this year:

Sharing food: The first three Sundays in Lent, there will be grocery bags of food available for you to donate in the entryway. These bags will contain an assortment of needed items, and will be available for a gift of $20.00. The bags of food will then go to our partner organization, FISH, who gives assistance to locals in need.
(Food and clothing donations are always welcome in the FISH box in the entry)

Bringing Joy: The last three Sundays in the Lenten season we will gather gifts for Easter Baskets for the children and families at the Fisher House at the VA hospital.

Providing Shelter: The donations gathered at our soup supper and on Maundy Thursday will be given to The Support Network, a local domestic violence shelter. All contributions will go to directly give aid to the Support Network.
