Come and bring a friend on Ash Wednesday:

We recognize that families with young children have schedules that may not allow them to worship at 7:00pm. Ash Wednesday is not reserved for only those who have later bedtimes. Pastor Pam and Marcia Henningson will be offering the Imposition of Ashes for adults and children of Caring for Children childcare and church families from 6:30 am to 8:00 am and again from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm as well as a Young Families Lent Kit to guide parents in leading family devotions for young children. Age appropriate activities, a tealight candle, and simple tactile objects to set the tone will be included.

Lent is for everyone, experience this special season as a family.

Adult Education (Every Wednesday)
We will take up Brian D. McLaren's wonderful book We Make the Road by Walking from 6:15—7:15 on Wednesday evenings. The reading is interesting and BRIEF (3-5 pages per week). McLaren is a well-known author, and his practical writing brings ancient texts alive in a wonderful, progressive way.
