The Season of Lent

Pilgrimage: Take, Leave, Lose, Find

We invite you to join a pilgrimage in Lent. Where are we headed? We are headed to Easter. What should we take? Everyone will have their own packing priorities. Will I have company? At times, but not always. What will the journey look like? It will be unique for everyone. Can I take someone with me? Of course. Will I be able to finish? Time will tell.

Sunday School Kicks Off September 9!

Many thanks go out to the adults who gave of their time and talents to make the Summer Sunday School program a success! The Summer Theme of WAYZ 2 PRAYZ took the children on several different paths to explore ways people pray to, and praise God. Praying and Praising through service, students made cards for residents of an area nursing home and baked cookies for those in our community who are homeless. Children learned about pilgrimages and journeys to find God by walking the Labyrinth. Using drums, students experienced 'making a joyful noise' as part of an ensemble or community. Offering praise was also shared through movement and dance. The Summer program wrapped up with the children experiencing the mysteries of the call of God, through an art project that took an unexpected turn.
