Prepare through Lent
Everyone is very welcome to participate in all these events, which add to the Lenten foundations of our regular Sunday worship.
Theology on Tap @ East Rock Brewing Company, March 6, 5.30–7.30 pm
In March this regular monthly gathering will mark Ash Wednesday. Drop in to East Rock Brewing Company at 285 Nicoll Street, in New Haven, and join Pastor JC and members of the congregation for convivial but meaningful conversation about the significant of Ash Wednesday in the Christian life. Ashes will be available.
Twice each week throughout Lent receive short meditative pieces from members and friends of First Pres, as they reflect on stories of faithful living. Make sure you are on the regular church email list to receive these reflections.
Each Sunday through Lent, stay in the Sanctuary after worship for a short service of healing and anointment. Led by a pastor member of the community, this gathering is an opportunity for each of us to lay bare our brokenness before God, we prepare prayerfully and repentantly for Holy Week.
For three Sundays during Lent, the adult education hour (9.30 to 10.30 am) will explore together the meanings and practices of three Holy Days in the week before Easter Sunday:
On Sunday, March 31, reflecting on Palm Sunday
On Sunday, March 7, reflecting on Maundy Thursday
On Sunday, April 14, reflecting Good Friday
