Message from the Minister’s Messy Desk

Today begins the season of Lent. This is a time of reflection, prayer and repentance.

Everyone is encouraged to watch our Ash Wednesday Meditation which explains a little more about the history and reason for Lent and will help us begin this year’s journey to the cross.

You can watch the service here:

We will celebrate the sacrament of communion during the service on March 7th. To participate you will have to provide your own juice and bread.
