Join us for Lent

This year our Lenten Sermon worship series is: “Imago Dei – A Lenten Bible Study of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion” by the United Methodist Church’s General Commission of Religion & Race (GCORR). It is written in the form of Lectio Divina, which is a spiritual practice of engaging the Scripture in four steps: read, meditate, pray and contemplate and approaches the text from a place of formation rather than information.Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 22nd.
