Strengthen Our Faith, Deepen Out Hope, Spread the Word Of God
Lenten mid-week Services
Wednesdays at 7:30 pm followed by a discussion of the readings. We want to use the scripture readings that are special to you. Do you have a piece of scripture that you have a deep connection with? Something that you identify with in a special way? Please let the rector know by e-mail or phoning the office, and it may be incorporated into a Wednesday night service. If it is used, you are invited to participate in the discussion afterwards to share why that piece of scripture is important to you (just tell your story, you don't have to write a sermon).
