Lenten Journey with Jesus

Lent and Easter come around every year calling us to “slow down”, “stop” at an oasis and find our spiritual compass.  This year the forty days of Lent begin on March 1 which is Ash Wednesday.  Our Lenten breakfasts begin that day at 6:45 am with an interdenominational worship. You will have another opportunity for spiritual reflection in the evening with an Ash Wednesday service in the chapel at 6:00 pm.  The sacrament of communion will be served in this quiet meditative worship.  Please note that there will not be a dinner before the Ash Wednesday service.  The Board of Deacons will meet immediately after.
