Lenten Worship and Activities

Lent. A Season of Spiritual Preparation.

LENT AT FIRST CHURCH OF CHRIST

The season has come for introspection and rest, renewal and return as we move towards Holy Week in later April.

Ash Wednesday, March 6 at 7pm

We enter into Lent with a reflective Ash Wednesday Service. Join us for a light supper and worship, a time of gathering to hear our own stories of repentance, compassion and reconciliation and the receiving of ashes.

Sundays March 10, 17, 24, 31 and April 7 at 10 am

We explore passages about abundance and keeping watch, judgment and light in the darkness – with a special guest preacher on March17th talking to us about what it means to be a just peace church. (see box)
