Lent 2021

During the season of Lent, we focus on the pattern of Jesus: suffering, death, and resurrection.  This year, we’ll be focusing on the ways God has been at work since creation following this pattern of suffering, death, and “making all things new.”  As we follow Jesus to Jerusalem and the cross, we know that an empty tomb awaits.  May we follow Jesus in such a way that we discover our lives resurrected, Made New!

Lenten Studies: Three Opportunities!

Tuesday mornings | 10:00 a.m. | 2/23 – 3/30

Savior: What the Bible Says About the Cross, taught by Pastor Ashley on Zoom. Book purchase is suggested. Click Here to purchase the book, and email Ashley with questions or if you’re interested in partcipating!

“Centering Down with Howard Thurman” | Sundays, 6:30-7:30 p.m. | 2/21 – 3/21

Pastor Alan will lead this study on Howard Thurman’s spiritual guidance and theological writing, which provided a foundation for the Civil Rights Movement of the 195os and 1960s. This study will focus on Thurman’s understanding of Christ as one of the “disinherited,” and then will look at questions of race through the lenses of fear, deception, hate, and finally, love. Contact Alan to sign up or with questions.
