Share the Love of Christ with All!

Join us in Lent

The church season of Lent marks the 40 days before the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection. During Lent, Christians focus on the events leading to Jesus’ death through increased, intentional spiritual practices of fasting, giving, Bible study, worship, devotion, and prayer. 

All your paths, O Lord, are steadfast love and faithfulness, to those who keep your covenant and your testimonies.

The covenants in the Old Testament are key to God’s redemptive plan to restore humanity to its divine calling. A covenant is a formal partnership, relationship, or agreement that includes specific promises and commitments. The “Promises and Practices” theme will center on the foundational story of God’s covenantal relationship with humans that reaches its climax in Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.

This Lent, we welcome you to the journey.

Adult Study following Worship

The Wednesday Bible Study will look closely at six foundational covenants between God and humanity: Eden, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and David, before establishing the new covenant through Jesus. Using scripture, videos from the Bible Project, and discussion we will discover that to tell the story of God redeeming humanity through Jesus is to tell the whole story of God’s covenantal relationship with humans. Whether you are new to the Bible or can quote chapter and verse, we welcome you to join this study.

Podcast Series

In this special series, Pastors Molly and Rebekah will consider “churchy” words (like repentance, sacrifice, temptation, etc.) that are used frequently during the season of Lent. On each episode, we will consider a word and dig into its biblical and theological background. We will explore ways the word has been used to help or to hurt, and how we may reclaim the word for our faith today.
