~~~~~~~ Lenten Season ~~~~~~~


Please join us for our Ash Wednesday Service on February 1oth. at 5:00pm.

During this season of Lent, we will again be holding our Lenten Suppers.  These will be held each Wednesday at 5:00pm from February 17 through March 16.  We will provide an excellent choice of soups freshly made by our members.   A short meditation will follow, starting at 5:45pm and the theme for the services of Lent will be Questions from the Bible.  Each service will focus on a question related to our Lenten journey and they will be presented in the order that they are recorded in the Bible. 


Join us for fellowship and help us celebrate this season of Lent.

Pastor Bill Sappenfield provides a insightful explaination of the period of LENT.

Holy Communion

We practice open communion weekly as we welcome all who honor Christ as their Savior to receive His true body and blood in our holy sacrament.  Both white grape juice and wine are offered.  Gluten-free wafers are available.  Children are invited forward for a blessing.  Our ushers will assist with any questions.
