5th Sunday in Lent
In Worship: The 40 days before Easter (excluding Sundays) mark the days of Lent in our Christian calendar. When you get past all of the words that sound “churchy”, Lent is a time for intense focus for Christians to grow in oneness with Christ and conform to the heart and mind of Christ.Many of us give up certain things for the forty days of Lent, and doing so can be a very beneficial thing for us. Our Lenten sermon series entitled: Giving It Up takes that idea one step further and explores that which God wants us to give up, not just for forty days, but forever. This week: Giving Up Our Lives
At the conclusion of Worship, Pastor Jeremy and Pastor Marla will discuss events coming up after Easter to help us discern where we stand as a congregation regarding LGBTQA+ inclusion.
