Ash Wednesday services will be at noon on February 26th, and at 7 p.m. as we host the Ecumenical Ash Wednesday service.
Gratitude Group Ministry
This new ministry will essentially be a cross between group spiritual direction and group pastoral care. It will be a time for people to come together into a peaceful space and talk about whatever they want to talk about to an attentive audience. You can invite people to just listen or you can invite the group's feedback. You can also simply pass and listen to others. This will be an opportunity to express yourself fully in a group setting where you will not be judged.
We began meeting on Saturday, February 22nd and will continue to meet on Saturdays at 10 a.m.
