Renew – Wednesday’s During Lent Sometimes things can feel stagnant, dried up, and connection can be spotty. Our faith reminds us of a God who is near us in the drought, in the wilderness and in the struggle for connection. This lent we will think about what renewal might look like for each of us. Elements such as prayer, community, grace, hope, service, and working for justice and peace remain at the heart of our Jesus faith and invite us to let them be our guides.
We’ll gather together on Wednesday nights in the Fellowship Hall for soup suppers from 6:00 p.m. to 6:45 p.m.; cleanup from 6:45 p.m. to 7 p.m.; and a meditative worship following at 7:00 p.m. in the sanctuary. Come for some, come for all. All are welcome!
