Continuing this week in our Lenten sermon series, Open to Peace, we’ll continue our exploration of the Prayer of Saint Francis, focusing specifically on the line, “Where there is doubt, let me sow faith.” A synonym of the word, faith, as it is used in most places in the bible, is trust.(see more)
Join us at 6:30 pm the first Wednesday of each month for dinner.
Wednesday, April 1, 2015
6:30 – 7:30 pm
For First Wednesday Dinner in April, we're going two places:
Each Wednesday of Lent | February 25 – April 1
Come-and-Go | 11:45 am – 1:00 pm | Leonard Memorial Chapel
We offer this come-and-go opportunity every Wednesday during Lent for prayer, meditation, a moment to yourself — this is your time and you are welcome to spend it in anyway that brings you peace. There is no formal service. However, a minister will be available during each service for prayer and communion. Come when you can, stay for as long as you’d like, and enjoy a reflective break during your midweek workday.
During this Lenten season, we invite you to these special studies to deepen your faith as you prepare for the celebration of Easter:

Information and guidance is available; stay for as long as you desire during this special opportunity for contemplative prayer.

12:15 | Chapel | Rev. Linda McDermott
7:00 pm | Sanctuary | A meditative service of word and music
Why do we get ashes on our heads? What does Maundy Thursday mean? Why do we call it Good Friday?
We’re going to explore these questions and more with a series of worship experiences designed for children Pre-K through 5th grade. Here’s the good news — these worship experiences will coincide with our traditional Lenten services, so while you are in the sanctuary, know that your children are exploring some of the same ideas in honest, yet always age-appropriate ways.
