Lent – Join Us!

Lent – Join Us!

You are invited! Please join us. 

Lent is a time of examining our lives, looking over our behavior of this last year, and repenting — to turn around and start over.  This year we focus on the Lord’s Prayer as a way of seeing the world and ourselves in a different light.
Throughout Lent, our worship services will focus on the Lord’s Prayer, the normative prayer Jesus gave us.  Using a different translation each week, our Pastor will be preaching on a section of this most familiar prayer, unfolding the layers of meaning, historically and for us today.  In our second service, the choir will be singing a different setting of the Lord’s Prayer each Sunday.  This in-depth series is already eliciting an enthusiastic response from all of us!
