For four (4) Wednesdays in Lent after enjoying a good soup or two, we will be engaged in a presentation and discussion led by Pastor Odie, This will be his last time leading a Lenten Seminar, as he retires in June. He promises to pick four (4) of what he considers to be the most important and compelling teachings that he has done over his 42 years of ministry. Come and see what he thinks is most important for you to know and remember concerning God in Jesus Christ and how it relates to our life and our word. Recommended reading for the Lenten program is "The Shack" by William P. Young.




Saturday March 18th and March 25th

9:00AM – 12:00 Noon
Sign up on the bulletin board or by calling the church office. Deepen your knowledge of your faith, religion and the Episcopal Church. There will be two sessions taught by Pastor Odie on Saturday March 18th and 25th, from 9 am – 12 noon each day.  The class is considered adequate preparation for anyone desiring to be confirmed or received in the Episcopal Church when the Bishop comes for Confirmation on May 14, 2017.
Commit yourself to experiencing a meaningful Lent
by taking advantage of these programs and
worship services of our church.
A Lenten discipline of both self-sacrifice
and mindful action can help us
better understand and participate in
Christ’s death and resurrection.

Tenebrae consists of participation in readings and psalms, with a candle being extinguished after each one until we are left in darkness and silence. The service lasts about 40 minutes and if you have never been to a service before, or you love Tenebrae, please join in the downstairs meeting room.
