Mid-Week Lent 2015


 Again this year we plan to have a light meal, a time for fellowship and

a study prior to the worship service. This will begin on the week

following Ash Wednesday (February 25th).

The meal time will begin at 6PM. SoupSupperLent

 The Wednesday night study this year will be "Fear" – How does fear permeate into our daily lives? How do we identify it? What do we do with it? Each week we will spend some time with

each of the themes as noted below, these will also serve as the subject of the worship homily as we see this around those who dealt with Jesus.
