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


During this season of Lent, we will again be holding our Lenten Soup Suppers.  These will be held each Wednesday at 5:00pm from February 25 through March 25.  We will follow the suppers with a short meditation starting at 5:45pm. 

For these Lenten meditations, we will be doing a series called "Questioned for Christ." It is a ten-part series for all of the Lenten Wednesdays, plus Holy Week and Easter. Each service will contain a drama in which a biblical character is questioned concerning their relationship to Jesus Christ. Will there be enough evidence to convict them of being a follower of Jesus? Is there enough evidence to convict us of believing in Jesus? Each service includes a drama set in a police interrogation room with a good cop and a bad cop asking their "witness" about Christ. Each drama is followed by a homily that pertains specifically to the drama.

Please join us for these interesting and thought-provoking services as we celebrate this season 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.
