Lent and Easter 2017

Artwork from the Lenten Craft Fair

The Lenten Craft Fair gives children a chance to understand what is happening in this important season.

We invite you to join us as we observe the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord.


Throughout Lent

Easter Memorials

We remember and honor our loved ones by giving for the Easter brass ensemble and Easter tulips, which decorate the church so beautifully on Easter Sunday.

Lenten Devotional

Don’t miss our church-wide, daily Lenten Devotional. Members and friends of the church have written meditations on Scripture to accompany us through the season of Lent. Read it here.

Small Groups

Offering fellowship and community, Small Groups are working through the six-session study Gospel Portraits of Jesus. Learn more and find a group.

Artist-in-Residence Armando Sosa’s Easter Weaving Project

Our artist-in-residence Armando Sosa, master weaver, is creating a set of three tapestries for use in worship during Easter, designed for the delight of our imaginations and the contemplation of the mystery of our salvation. Read about the project and follow his progress by visiting the loom in the church library and watching for photo updates on our Facebook page.
