United Lenten Devotions – 2017

The United Lenten Devotions Wednesday night series begins March 8th.  This year, we will be using the theme, “Father, forgive them” from Jesus’s last words on the cross as found in the Gospel according to Luke. We will be using the texts to provide opportunity to reflect on the places that we need to be reconciled to God and to each other and the ways that we are called to work for reconciliation in the world around us. Please join us!

Dinner is at 6:00 pm, with the liturgy beginning at 7:00 pm.  Please note the following dates and locations:
