Join Us for Lent in 2021

Ash Wednesday

The season of Lent began with Ash Wednesday on Wednesday, February 17, 2021. Our 7:30 pm Zoom worship included confession, assurance, Holy Communion, and a rite for remembering our cross-shaped life in Christ. (As our worship took place on Zoom, there was no imposition of ashes.)

Thursday Lenten Study Series

Starting on February 25, 2021 at 7:30 pm, Pastor Kathleen Reed will lead “Letters, Papers, and Perspectives from Prison,” a five-week study series over Zoom. We will read and discuss writings from prison by St. Paul, Martin Luther King Jr, Nelson Mandela, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and others. Study materials will be made digitally accessible for free. For more information, contact Pastor Kathleen.
