Lent & Holy Week

Journey with us these coming weeks as we gather to remember where we came from with ash (or dirt) on our foreheads to the light and life of Jesus' resurrection on Easter Sunday. With the theme 'Rooted in Life,' we'll dive into different aspects of what brings us hope and light daily. We'll meet online and in our parking lot together. As we enter Holy Week, we embrace the days with continued worship and celebration of God's light, life, and resurrection.
