Lenten Journey

On March 1, we begin an important journey in the life of the church.

We are on the road to Jerusalem, an upper room in a house within the city, a cross on Golgotha, just outside the city, a tomb in a garden near the city. This forty-day journey that brings us to Jerusalem is called Lent. The journey is by no means an easy one. We invite you to be a part of the journey.

Ash Wednesday, March 1

The Lenten season begins with the observance of Ash Wednesday.

6:30 p.m.  – a simple meal of a bowl of soup and roll in the Jones Room.

7:00 p.m. – Worship and Imposition of the Ashes

Lenten Bible Studies

Lenten Adult Sunday School
Lent is, among other things, a journey on the way of the cross—a journey of learning. Starting on Sunday March 12th, 10:50 a.m., Adult Sunday School will begin with a series on Paul, his teachings, writings, and understanding of what it means to follow Jesus and to “take up ones cross.”

Tuesday Lenten Lunches

Join us March 7th, 14th, 21st for lunch and worship. Each week we will gather for a light lunch of soup and sandwiches followed by a brief (10-15 min time of worship that will consist of prayer, music, scripture, and reflections.) Cost of lunch is by donation. Lenten Lunches begin at noon. Worship will start at 12:45 pm and everything will end by 1 pm for those who need to return to work or have an appointment.

What We Believe

Discover what we all have in common as Christians and what sets us apart as Presbyterians. What We Believe is a three-week class in celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation that will explore the common beliefs we hold, others definitions and traditions, and what makes us unique as reformed. Wednesday evenings at 7pm on March 8th, 15th, and 22nd.
