Lent 2023

The Sound of Silence

Our theme for this year is “Be still and know that I am God.” Those words from Psalm 46 remind us that it is in the still, quiet moments of our lives that we truly sense the presence of God. Let’s face it, our lives are anything but still and quiet! During this season, we will lean into the spiritual disciplines, learn how to recognize the signs of the presence of God, and pray together for the Spirit to fill us and empower us for the journey ahead. We hope that you will join us each week in worship as we travel together through the season of Lent.

Holy Week is a special time in the church year when we retell the stories of Jesus’ final days. Though marked by sacrifice and sorrow, we ultimately hear the message of God’s great gifts of love and hope. We remember that through grace there is new life!
