Lenten Season: a Time for Personal Reflection, Change

Lent is a 40-day season of reflection, prayer, and soul-searching for Christians. We do it as a way of reminding ourselves that the God who created us loves us so much that Jesus was sent to earth to save us from ourselves.

Everyone is invited to join with our congregation's Lenten observances. Every Wednesday in Lent there is a special Bible Study with Pastor Tom at 6 p.m.  Come-as-you-are and bring a Bible.  There is also a Tuesday Bible study at 10 a.m.  Come to either or both, as you are able.

Here's a link to Bible readings for the special days of Lent: Bible Readings.
