Lent & Holy Week
The season of Lent invites us to spend some intentional time reflecting on Jesus, His 40 days in the wilderness, and looking at our own spiritual lives. Lent can be a season to review, reevaluate and renew our commitments to Christ.
Lent Life Groups: Meals with Jesus: The Second Seating
Beginning March 10 >> Join us as we take a “second look” and go a little deeper with a few familiar stories of Jesus… and perhaps meet him again, for the first time. This year our hope is to once again, break bread together in Lent Groups. Let’s feast on God’s Word! Join us as we take a second look at the revolutionary Love of Christ.

March 6: Ash Wednesday Services
7:30 a.m., Evans Chapel > 8 p.m. > Sanctuary >> Come and worship. Begin this season of 40 days in a quiet and reflective way, considering the journey Jesus embarked on for us. Both services include meditation, readings, silence for personal reflection, and the imposition of ashes for those who wish to receive them. The morning service will include the Lord’s supper.
While Holy Week is solemn and sorrowful, join us this week as we anticipate the joy of Easter through the recognition of God’s goodness in sending His Son to die for our salvation.

This will help us experience the depths of these moments so we can truly prepare for the joy of the Resurrection on Easter morning.
