Lenten Service of Evening Prayer: We will also be having services of evening prayer on Wednesdays during Lent. At 6 pm each week, we will gather in the sanctuary to pray and reflect on who Jesus says he is through several of the “I Am” texts.  Worship will end by 6:30 PM to allow full participation in our Wednesday Night Live programming. For those participating in the Wednesday Night Live Meal, it will be served at 5:30 PM in room 4. All are welcome as we answer Christ’s call to Come and See.

Coffee and doughnuts are available  from 9:15 – 11 AM, in the Memorial Lounge, located outside the Education Wing door of the Sanctuary and in the kitchen, located at the end of the Education Wing hallway. Please join us!
