Soup and Seminars
Dinner at 6:00 PM, Seminar from 6:30 – 7:30 PM.
 
For five (5) Wednesdays in Lent after enjoying a good soup or two, we will be engaged in a presentation and discussion on the Five Marks of Mission, or ways that we live out our faith in the world, led by Pastor Kate. This five-week series provides the opportunity to observe and to reflect on the ways in which God's Life and Mission express themselves in us and through us. Each week will explore the Anglican Mars of Mission (Tell, Teach, Tend, Transform and Treasure) through thought-provoking questions and activities and prayerful discussion, as we reflect on what God is doing in our lives and in our world.

 
 

INQUIRERS’ CLASS

 
9:00 AM – 2:00 PM, Saturday March 17th
Sign up on the bulletin board or by calling the church office. Deepen your knowledge of your faith, religion and the Episcopal Church. There will be one session taught by Pastor Alanna on Saturday March 17th, from 9 am – 2 pm.   The class is considered adequate preparation for anyone desiring to be confirmed or received in the Episcopal Church when the Bishop comes for Confirmation on May 13, 2018.
 
Commit yourself to experiencing a meaningful Lent
by taking advantage of these programs and
worship services of our church.
 
A Lenten discipline of both self-sacrifice
and mindful action can help us
better understand and participate in
Christ’s death and resurrection.
