lenten opportunities


Join Us for Lenten Worship

Beginning Sunday, February 14, 2021

11:00 a.m. on FacebookYouTube, or our Website

 

Each of us is created a precious and holy vessel of embodied love. We have been through a harrowing time since last Lent that has shattered our sense of wholeness—body, mind, and spirit—like a glass vessel fractured into pieces.

 

In this Lenten “season of recovery” for our physical, communal, mental, intellectual, and environmental health, we will explore the healing narratives of Jesus that tell of divine solidarity with human suffering and remind us that we can begin a journey toward making something beautiful from that which is seemingly broken.

 

We invite you to watch this short video trailer on the Lenten sermon series.


Lenten calendar of opportunities

We have a calendar of Lenten Service Opportunities and daily prompts you will find helpful in your observance of the season of Lent. For a downloadable Lenten Calendar with all the daily prompts and opportunities, please click on this link.


Lenten Sunday Service Opportunities

Every Sunday during Lent, we’re offering a no-contact Lenten Sunday service opportunity for the whole church. Each service opportunity will correspond with the healing focus for the week. It’s a great way to put healing for our community and for ourselves to practice. Contact Cortney Babajtis (cortneypaige84@gmail.com) for more information about any of the service opportunities listed below.
