A church-wide commitment to pray and fast every Wednesday through Lent

During Lent (March 6–April 17), we invite you to join us in fasting every Wednesday and praying, wherever you are, at Noon. If you’re free during the lunch hour, there will be a prayer service held each Wednesday from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m. in the main sanctuary. As a whole church, we seek the presence and the power of the Holy Spirit—denying ourselves, briefly, the pleasures of this world, that we may find the riches of heaven—an awakening in our midst!

A service to prepare us for Lent

Ash Wednesday begins a time of prayer and fasting as we intentionally focus on Jesus’ sacrifice and resurrection. We will gather on March 6 from 6:00 to 6:40 p.m. in the Sanctuary for an Ash Wednesday Service. Join us as we prepare ourselves to take up our cross and follow Jesus.

Broaden and go deeper in your life with God through uncommon faith practices

Pastor Bob Casady leads four sessions presenting the classical, yet uncommon faith practices of Spiritual Direction, Spirit-Guided Prayer, Engaging in Scripture, and Establishing a Rule of Life. If you have ever been in a class with Bob, you know he moves beyond theories to practicum experiences and practical methods. Come and participate in as many weeks as you can to deepen and broaden your personal and community life with God.
