Lent | 2023

Events & Worship Opportunities

I will be preaching a Lenten Series titled, A Jesus Shaped Life, based on the book A Jesus Shaped Life, Forty Days Toward Christ-Likeness. The book is available on Kindle from Amazon or we can order copies from Seedbed, which I am a member of what they call their Farm Team.

God promises to shape us into the image of Jesus. A Jesus-Shaped Life invites you to invest forty days into learning how to cooperate with the Holy Spirit as he transforms you from the inside out.

The First Sunday in Lent is February 26. Call the office to order your copy.

To place hydrangeas in the church for Easter in memory or honor of a loved one, pick up one of the order forms in the narthex. Hydrangeas will be $15.00 each and payment (by cash or check) must accompany the order form. The deadline to order is March 12th. No exceptions. Easter lilies will not be available this year.

The service will end with the stripping of the Altar and all going out into the night in silence as we prepare for the events of Easter Sunday.
