Be Thou My Vision
Lent is the Christian season of preparation before Easter. Lent is a season for reflection and taking stock. By observing the forty days of Lent, the individual Christian imitates Jesus’ withdrawal into the wilderness for forty days, as described in the Gospels. Jesus came through his forty days in the wilderness transformed and ready to serve as God wanted him to serve. That is our goal, as well.
Lent begins with Ash Wednesday on February 13th. Ash Wednesday is like a wake-up call. We have forty precious days to open ourselves up to God, to examine ourselves in the presence of one who created us, knows us, and loves us. We have forty days to face ourselves, and learn to not be afraid of God’s loving transformation.

Blessing of Backpacks, Sunday, August 31st: Each year for Labor Day we hear from adult members about how their work reflects their faith. This Sunday we will also honor the work of our children: education. Please bring your family, and your backpack(s) to church this week. We will discuss our children's work as students/learners and will say a prayer for their work (bless their backpacks).
