Lent 2022

Lent begins Ash Wednesday, March 2.  Join us on a 40-day Lenten journey, called The Chosen. We will follow the footsteps of Jesus and the lives of those who were transformed because of their relationship with him.  He wants the same life-changing transformation for you.  Check out all the resources available for you to join the journey.

WORSHIP

The exception is Ash Wednesday where we will provide the imposition of ashes. Want to learn more about what imposition of ashes is all about?
