People Along the Way: Journeying with Jesus Through Lent

A Lenten Devotional Booklet will be available this year as a guide and reflection piece for our Lenten journey.

Written by members and friends of the congregation, it will include the Gospel lesson for each Sunday of Lent, a brief reflection, and a prayer.

Each week, the common lectionary tells the story of very real people, encountering Jesus, and walking with him, just as we do.

The reflections will explore the ways the story relates to our lives, what in it might cause trouble, challenge, or affirmation.  Does the story cause you to tremble? Feel awe? Where do we see God at work?… Continue

Margaret Fox to preach on Sunday, March 30th

Margaret Fox, a candidate for ministry in the PCUSA, and a student at both Yale Divinity School and Yale Law School, will be our guest preacher on Sunday, March 30th. Margaret will preach on the story of the blind man found in John’s gospel, Chapter 9 verses 1-41.

Margaret preached last summer during the series, The Bible from Genesis to Revelation.

Plan to attend Sunday morning’s worship service to hear Margaret proclaim good news.

Our Lenten Jouney Begins!

The signs of winter remain all around us still, but the promise of spring and new life are ever before us. The season of Lent begins this month and perhaps it is fitting that we should enter a season of penitence and reflection while the nights are still long and the air still cold. The season of Lent is not for the faint of heart. It will require each of us to journey with Jesus … all the way to the cross. Lent begins with a service of penitence on Ash Wednesday, March 5th. We will gather at 7:00 p.m. in the quiet of the sanctuary to hear words of scripture, lift up prayers for ourselves, one another and our world, and remember anew the promise that God will never forsake us. Ashes will be distributed during the service, which will also include a time of anointing for healing and wholeness. The service lasts about 45 minutes. All are welcome. Sunday morning worship will take the faithful on a journey with Jesus and his friends, as together we explore the ways that Jesus’ touch and teachings changed a people who were worried and afraid, into a people of great hope and promise.
