Sunday Worship - One Service @ 11 AM in the Sanctuary

Lent & Easter

Lent is the six weeks that proceeds Holy Week and Easter. Beginning on Ash Wednesday, which calls us to remember our mortality and belovedness before God, we enter into a season that invites us to return to God, to seek forgiveness and freedom, and open our eyes once again to the power of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. 

Our sermon series for Lent is entitled, "A Very Good God: Awakening to the Goodness of God." This series will look at the covenants and promises of God through scripture that have revealed to us God's goodness and culminates in the shocking and powerful hope of Jesus' death and resurrection. 

We will also be offering Lenten studies starting on February 20. More information about those studies and all our worship services can be found below.

So we are reminded that these gifts come from God’s grace and come to us unmerited and freely bestowed to help us grow in our own relationship with God and the Holy Spirit and to fulfill our call to discipleship and ministry. Through our study of the book, For the Common Good, we will explore the purpose of our Spiritual Gifts, spend time identifying our own Spiritual Gifts, and consider ways God has called us to use them to live the Great Commandment. We will host lively conversations, explore our one constantly connect with Scripture, to examine the unfolding Spiritual Gifts throughout our lives, the value of understanding them, and the call upon us to use them.
