Life is full of journeys … some are short-lived and offer fun along the way. Others seem to go on forever and ever, and they frequently demand much of us. February 17th is Ash Wednesday. It marks the beginning of an annual journey for Christians. It’s the journey to the cross, the journey that prepares us for Easter Sunday.
We invite you to journey with us each Wednesday in Lent
All are welcome
This year, our Lenten Services will be offered via Zoom
Come with soup to eat or just to chat
A service of stories, Word, and contemplative music
Each Wednesday, we will experience a biblical “road.” When we travel down that road, we will discover ourselves in a new light and rediscover God who promises to always travel with us.
We are looking for people to share a personal story bringing the biblical story to life each Wednesday.
Have you explored any of the following paths?
Has your journey of life left you with a story that you are willing to share?
Remember the path we travel always leads us to the fullness of life through our encounters along the way.
