We will hold a service of worship and dedication at 7:00 PM.

Come and learn more on Saturday, April 20th. God has given us the earth and charged us to take care of it.  How are we doing on that front?

We will celebrate the resurrection of our Lord with two services (9:30 and 11:00 AM).

 

 

 

Lenten Devotional

Another part of our annual preparation for Easter is the Lenten Devotional booklet.  This daily devotional is written by the laity and clergy of our area.  Many different people have contributed their real-life stories and encounters with God to help us prepare for Easter.

The booklets are available in several churches, but they’re also published on our website.  See the below article to open the daily devotionals.
