 MEDITATIONS ON THE PASSION


Meditations on the Passion 2016A Lenten Service of

Lessons and Carols


Sunday March 6

4:00 p m.


In the spirit of Lent and a preview of Holy Week, please join us for this evening service of selected readings interspersed with hymns and special music sung by the choir. “For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.” – Romans 6



PARISH SURVEY

Your vestry invites you to help us as we discern what “missional identity” best fits our parish community at this time in our lives. In the coming weeks, we will invite you into a brief conversation as we survey the parish. We want your voice to be heard in our process so that we can take into account your hopes and desires. The results of our survey will inform the process at our vestry retreat where we are confident that we will arrive at a new mission statement.



RESTING IN THE PRESENCE

On Sunday mornings during Lent, the choir and ministers are not processing in; rather, we are taking our places for worship at 10:20 a.m. Please join us during this quiet time as we rest in the Spirit's presence.
