Lent

In the wake of all that is going on around us, in our world and even in our denomination, it seems especially important to use this Lenten season as a time to deeply reflect and consider who we are as a faith community.

Our 2019 Lenten Theme, This Is Us offers the opportunity for such deep reflection of what we value as a church, including diversity of worship experiences, community, growth in discipleship, compassion and generosity, and sharing God’s love with others. Each week of Lent 2019 there will be a value that we focus on together as well as an action item to actively express that value. Please join us in participating in all of these as you are able to deepen your experience of Lent and our churchwide This Is Us worship theme!
