Lenten and Easter Worship

This Lenten season we are reflecting on the life, suffering, and death of Jesus through a study of the Gospel of John. This meditation will prepare us to celebrate and experience the joy of His resurrection on Easter. Please join us for worship on Sundays and Wednesdays during the Lenten season.
