Join us for our Wednesday Lenten Service on Febryary 24th, at 7:30 pm. Our theme for this Lenten season is "The Places of the Passion". In this service for Week 1 of Lent, the place of the Passion is Bethany, as we remember that Jesus is anointed for burial by his friend Mary, at her home in this small town. We are called to prepare our hearts for Christ's death as well, while still looking toward the fragrant surprise of the empty tomb. The meaning, history and spiritual inspiration associated with Bethany help us to grow to understand more deeply the hard road our Lord took that the way to heaven might be open to us.
