Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me...Psalm 51:10

Return, Repent, Refocus is this year’s theme for our Lenten mid-week evening worship.  Prior to worship we’ll assemble in the Fellowship Hall for a pot luck meal.  After dinner, we’ll remain in Fellowship Hall for a service of holy communion.

This will be an excellent opportunity for all the ages to meet together and discover Christ’s ultimate life giving sacrifice.  Cross+Gen Lent is lectionary-based, interpreting Scripture each week through the arts and music, and includes a home connection with FAITH5.
