Second  Sunday in Lent ~ February 25, 2024
‘Wilderness … Infused with Holy Insight’

On this 2nd Sunday in Lent, we find ourselves drawn deeper into the wilderness with its invitation not to tame but rather to embrace it.

Along with the disciples, we will hear and wrestle with what just may be one of Jesus’ most challenging and definitive calls on our lives: to “deny ourselves, take up our cross and follow him”.

What can this possibly mean?
How can it be that as we embrace this call we actually come into REAL life?

Attending In Person?

Sunday service is also live-streamed from the sanctuary at 10:15am Sunday morning. Please participate, live on YouTube.  The platform has the option for you to add your comments, prayers and concerns in the live chat window. You may also choose to write your prayers down, speak them aloud during the service, or send your prayer requests to us via email. Arrive at 10:15am to greet each other, then the service will begin right at 10:30am.


Our worship each Sunday is intended to be a collective experience, a communal practice.

We might step into whatever is our sanctuary, each one of us as individuals, and yet as we assemble, from wherever we are, we become a people, drawn together through song and prayer, through word and ritual, and through the Spirit who breathes through it all, through us all.

One and the same Spirit uniting us breathing us into life!
