Lenten Bible Study

Come join the pastorís Bible Study on Wednesday nights in Lent - March 22, 29 and April 5! We will be looking at Symbols of our Faith.

We will begin with a time of fellowship around 6:15 p.m., have dinner at 6:30 p.m., and begin our study about 6:50 p.m. which should last about an hour. 

On April 13, we will have a service for Holy Thursday with Communion and explore the story of Jesusí death as Lent draws to a close.

If you are willing to coordinate and serve one of these Bible Study dinners, please let Pastor Barbara know.

Watch the bulletin the subjects and scripture verses for each study. You are encouraged to participate in all four studies. However, each Study will stand on its own, so that if you need to miss one, you can still be part of the next one!

As the people of God, we are called to develop our faith through the understanding of Godís love and to be a church dedicated to prayer.  

We believe that Christ is calling us to serve by being present and welcoming to all, regardless of ethnic, cultural or economic background.

God calls us to give our time, talent and monetary resources to proclaim effectively the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
