Lent with Children REV

*  *  *  *  *
Wednesday Evenings 6:30 in the Sanctuary through April 5
Each Wednesday evening during the Lenten Season, we will practice Contemplative worship.  Each service will begin in silence.  After our minds are quieted, we will offer a song of praise, confess our sins, and then break the bread and lift the cup of Christ.  Then we will close in a time of guided prayer.  We invite you to join us.
