What’s Happening in Lent

This Lent, we find ourselves centered on what it means to walk in the way. As you consider your walk during this season, please see below for all your opportunities to serve and learn. In worship, walk in the way of people in the Passion narrative.

Walk in the Way…With New Shoes!

Our PADS guests spend a lot of time walking, so let’s give them a little spring in their step! Throughout Lent, please bring donations of new tennis shoes and socks (in all sizes) to the box in the Sanctuary. All donations will be gifted to our guests when our congregation serves them on Easter evening.

Spiritual Practices Workshop Every Thursday

You learned to walk with lots of practice, right? Throughout Lent, we will be learning about seven different spiritual practices. The following week, you will be encouraged to use your journal (available for $15) as you find ways to incorporate this spiritual practice into your daily life.
