March 9-April 6
Traditionally, Lent is a time of preparation for those who will be baptized at Easter. Candidates take a close look at scripture, faith, service, and generosity as they anticipate their new life in Christ.
This Lent, we will dive into the waters of baptism as we remember who we are as God’s covenant people and as we explore the baptismal promises that we make when we Affirm our Baptism.
Our Schedule at Advent:
March 9— Dinner at 6pm, Holden Worship at 7pm “Live among God’s faithful people” Pastor Alexis Twito, Advent
March 16—Dinner at 6pm, Holden Worship at 7pm “Hear the word of God and share in the Lord’s Supper” Pastor John Norquist, Faith
