Lent & Holy Week Schedule of Events and Worship Times
Our journey to the Empty Tomb
The season of Lent is an invitation to look within, connect deeper, and challenge ourselves to grow in faith. We historically have associated Lent with the spiritual practices of fasting, prayer, and almsgiving. This Lent we join our ancestors in faith by seeking to reorient our community of faith around these.
We invite you to join us for Wednesday Soup Suppers and Worship, where we will hear a Bethlehem disciple reflect on one of these practices. Just as Jesus learns more about himself during his forty days in the wilderness, may we learn about ourselves as individuals and as community. Join us as we journey with Jesus through the wilderness, into the tomb, and to the resurrection.
Pastor Krista, Pastor Paisley, and Deacon Heather
