Join us as we
Passionately follow Jesus
In an effort to support necessary global efforts to curtail the spread of COVID-19, all of our services and ministries are currently on hiatus.
However, we are still the church. While we may need to gather together virtually for a time, we want to provide opportunities to worship together. Scroll down for the various ways we can connect during this time.
Thank you for your patience, understanding and prayers.
The Season of Lent
Join us as we enter the season of Lent, the period of 40 days which begins on Ash Wednesday and concludes with Easter.
Lent is the period of 40 days, excluding Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and concludes with Easter.
Sundays are not included as days in Lent because they are celebrations of the Resurrection. Because of this, they are traditionally seen as “Feast” days. The Lenten season reflects the 40 years Israel wandered in the desert, and the 40 days Jesus spent in prayer and fasting in the desert prior to the start of his public ministry. Often people choose to give something up for Lent, as a simple way of saying “no” to something, just as we do when we resist temptation – an important theme of the season.
As a church family we have traditionally read through one of the Gospels together in a three year cycle starting with Matthew (Year A), Mark (Year B), and Luke (Year C). This is Year A in the church calendar which means we will be reading the Gospel of Matthew.
