Current Events

From the first chapter of the Bible to the last, God’s Word is water marked.  During the season of Lent, you are invited to hear and experience God’s Word for us through a myriad of Bible passages about water.

Every Wednesday during Lent, beginning February 14 we will offer
two worship services – 12:00pm and 6:30pm.

An hour prior to both worship times, a simple Soup Meal will be served.

March 7
A Storm is Calmed & Water is Walked Upon
Matthew 8:24-27 & Matthew 14:25, 29-33
Questions to Ponder:

  • When have you been called upon to exhibit radical dependence on God?
  • What storm would you like to calm?

March 14
Marked in the Waters of Baptism
Matthew 28:16-20
Drawn to the Word Worship
The evening will be a worship and artistic experience where Artist and Pastor Paul Oman will paint right before our eyes a larger-than-life mural of God’s sending us to baptize in God’s name!   The story will unfold artistically, musically, narratively and scripturally.

March 21
The Choir Spring Cantata: The Sacred Places
John 2:1-12, John 5:2-12, John 13:1-17
Our church choir will explore Christ’s Water Mark stories, emphasizing the locations they occurred: The Sea of Galilee, the Wedding at Cana and the Upper Room. This is a memorable telling of Christ’s water encounters with poignant narrations, beautiful choral arrangements and creative orchestrations. 

Palm Sunday, March 25
8:00, 9:15, 10:30a.m.
We will move from the Procession of Palms and shouting “Hosanna” for the King to reading the Passion story. With Christ we lament his suffering and all human suffering, but expect God’s final vindication.

Maundy Thursday, March 29
12:00 p.m. Traditional Worship
with Holy Communion
The service will use the spoken word and old, familiar hymns to remember Jesus’ last supper in the upper room.

6:30 p.m. A Christian Passover Experience
We gather for worship around the dinner table, where we will learn about the Seder meal. The Seder, the most commonly celebrated Jewish ritual, is performed by multiple generations of a family, involving the retelling of the story of the liberation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt using scripture and symbolic foods. Jesus was celebrating a similar meal with his disciples on the night he was betrayed. We will incorporate music and Holy Communion in this worship event.

Good Friday, March 30
12:00 p.m. & 6:30 p.m.
Service of Shadows
With the eerie sound of the cello as our back drop, we will read the last words Christ spoke as we experience his light diminishing in our midst before he is laid to rest in the tomb.

Easter Worship with Holy Communion, April 1
8:00, 9:15, 10:30a.m.
