LENTEN SERVICES – Each Wednesday during Lent at 7:00 P.M. The theme of our mid-week Lenten services will be “The Hard Sayings of Jesus.” We will discover what makes these passages hard to understand and hard to follow. We will also explore the connection of these teachings of Jesus and the Kingdom of God. There will not be fellowship time after services this year.

O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth. (Psalm 8:1)
God, we stand in awe of Your creation – singing birds, sparkling stars, artful webs spun by spiders, flowers bursting from buds to blossoms, trees changing colors and shedding their leaves, the moon – predictable yet ever-changing, sunrises, sunsets, and double rainbows. We marvel at babies that coo, the vitality of youth, the wisdom of the aged, the love of families, the concern of communities, the warmth of our church, the promise of our faith, the sacrifice of Christ, the power of the Holy Spirit, Your Grace.
O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth. Amen.
