Wednesdays in Lent—Join us for lunch and discussion this year on the Wednesdays in Lent. Our topic for discussion will be Jesus’ commandment to his disciples on Maundy Thursday to love one another as he has loved us (St. John 15:12). We will explore what these words mean for us personally and as a worshipping community. Please come with questions and thoughts! Lunch will include soup, a sandwich, salad, and drinks—or you may bring your own. Cost is $5. We will conclude with prayers by 12:50 p.m.
Lenten Devotional—Copies of “Led by Christ: Action Begins in the Heart” are available at the entrances for use on your journey through Lent and will allow you time to reflect on the choices you make each day and compare them to those scripture urges us to make.
