This Lent, we will walk the Way of the Cross, as we prepare for Easter. Every week we will look at different stations of the Passion. Stations of the Cross is an ancient spiritual practice that is pilgrimage for us. We, as Christians, value the season of Lent, as it brings us back to the cross, reminds us of our mortality, and our need for God and God’s grace. Join us in setting aside time to read, pray, and slow down this Lent!

While in-person worship has been suspended on Sunday’s and Wednesday’s, we invite you to join us for a brief Service of the Word. No singing, this will last about 20 minutes. We are hoping it will minimize our risk of exposure while giving us a sense of community and worship.
Due to the changing conditions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person worship will be suspended beginning Wednesday, October 14th. We consider this to be temporary but are unable to predict how long this might continue.
