    Wednesday, February 26 - Ash Wednesday Service at 7:00 pm

    Join us Wednesday, February 26 as we begin the season of Lent with a special Ash Wednesday Service. At this service, we use ashes as a sign of our call to repent, as well as a sign of our mortality. The ashes are used to place the sign of the cross on the forehead of each person to remind ourselves of our need to repent and of our need for the forgiveness of Christ. Childcare will be provided during the service.

  • Lenten Bible Study Begins Sunday March 1

    Lenten Bible Study

    "We are Beloved, A Lenten Journey"

    10:15 am Sundays during Connection Hour

    Register


    Join Faith UMC as we journey through Lent together as we study "We Are Beloved" March 1 through April 5 at 10:15 am Sundays in the Community Room. This 6-week Lenten journey follows stories of Jesus' experience of God's love. The incarnate Son of God was made fully human, which means that Jesus had to fully mature in strength and wisdom to learn that he was beloved. Just as Jesus learned of his belovedness, we, too, can cultivate the wisdom and knowledge that we are deeply loved.

     

    Each week begins with a scripture passage, a weekly devotion, reflection questions, an optional prayer bead experience, and a listening meditation. Be transformed by God's love this Lenten season. Books will be available to purchase for $10.00 each. Please register on our website under Faith Groups.

Training and a flexible schedule are provided. Make a difference in someone’s experience at Faith UMC by serving as a Guest Center Host.
