Join Us During Lent, Holy Week & Easter

Figuring out Faith with Peter

February 14 (Ash Wednesday) – April 7

This Lent, we will journey through a new worship series called: Wandering Heart: Figuring Out Faith with Peter.

In this worship series, we will focus on the life and faith of one of Jesus’ most famous disciples: Peter. In Peter, we often see ourselves. Like many of us, Peter has a wandering heart. 

By following Peter’s journey, we want to affirm that faith is a constant journey of steadfast pursuit, seeking and wandering. We want to affirm that wandering is exploration, not necessarily distance from God. When you look closely at Peter’s story, you find Jesus at each step along the way offering him love. 

This Lent, we will look for ourselves in Peter’s story. We will reflect on the stages of our own faith journeys as well as who and what has shaped us along the way.  Along with weekly worship service, we will provide Devotional Booklet and Daily Devotional Cards for your own reflection.

Join us this Lent, and invite a loved one to worship with you!

Holy Week

March 24 – Palm Sunday

10:00 a.m.

March 28 – Maundy Thursday

7:00 p.m. - “Journey to the Cross with Peter” - This service invites you to walk "the way of sorrows' with Peter as our companion.  It is a service of confession, lament, and repentance. Through Peter’s experience, we will consider our own. As Jesus tells Peter the truth about himself, we will consider the truth about ourselves.

March 29 – Good Friday

Noon to 3 p.m. - There are 6 prayer stations to journey though 'the way of sorrows' to the cross at your own pace.  We invite you to read the scripture, look closely at the art, and reflect upon the artist's words.  There are also ways for you to tangibly and prayerfully respond to the scripture.

7:00 p.m. - "A Service of Tenebrae" or "Darkness” - This service will be based on a twelfth-century late night service and is an extended meditation on the passion of Christ (Book of Worship).

March 31 – Easter Sunday

8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. - Pancake Breakfast

10:00 a.m. - Worship

Candy Donations Needed!

Individually wrapped pieces of candy or trinkets small enough to fit into plastic Easter eggs are needed for this event.
