LENTEN GATHERINGS for “Lovers & Fools”!

Sundays at 9 a.m. with Carrie – 2/18 through 3/18
Thursdays at 6 p.m. with Ava and Lucy – 2/22 through 3/22
Tuesdays at 2 p.m.
with Tom and Betty – 2/20 through 3/20

In an unusual twist, the secular calendar is lending special meaning to the Christian calendar!   In 2018, Lent is framed at one end by Ash Wednesday on Valentine’s Day and on the other, by Easter on April Fool’s Day!
The UCC’s Lent Devotional takes on this theme of “Lovers and Fools” to inspire us in our Lenten reflections – a time to explore faith in meaningful ways – on our own and in community.
All are invited to participate in a “Lenten Gatherings for Lovers & Fools” at any of the listed times during Lent. Though these gatherings will vary somewhat from one to another, they will all utilize the UCC’s Lenten Daily Devotional.  Click HERE for a preview.Lenten Gatherings for Lovers & Fools:
