Lent 2019

Christian growth is a partnership between the body of Christ (that’s you and me) and the Spirit of Christ. The strength of that partnership develops with practice.

The holy season of Lent highlights how the disciplines of worship, prayer, study and service – practiced in a community – with conversation, questioning, listening and reflection shape our relationship to God, self and others.

You are encouraged to practice and deepen your discipleship this Lent. Participate in worship, a growth group, a Bible study and with our online daily devotional.

Teach Us To Pray – A Sermon Series on The Lord’s Prayer

10:30 a.m. Sunday Morning Worship during Lent

Most Christians know the prayer by heart, and it is used today by every Christian tradition, through there are sometimes minor variations in the wording. The prayer as we use it today is a version that was adapted by the early Christian communities from the two Gospel texts, and it was taught in this form to new converts. At the heart of our prayers will be these words that Jesus Himself taught us – simple enough to be memorized by children, and yet profound enough to sustain a whole lifetime of prayer. Come and hear a fresh expression of how Jesus teaches those who chose to learn from Him how to pray.

Open Chapel

Weekdays- March 6-April 20, 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

For your convenience, the Chapel will be open for prayer and silent meditation during the season of Lent. Finding a time and place of silence can be difficult in our daily lives, yet it is a vital part of drawing near to God. For this reason, we are making the church chapel a place for silent prayer and meditation during Lent. We will keep the doors closed to buffer out the noise.
