To get ready for Easter we will be observing the season of Lent. For more information or details on Lent & the resources provided on this page, please watch the video above. Stay tuned every week for new devotionals by Brandon Gregory as he guides us through the Lent season. New videos will be added weekly and will show up below.
Lent- Week 1: Injustice
Brandon Gregory goes through the season of Lent with us starting with week 1. He also shows us how to use all the online tools available on our website to get the most out of the Lent season. Join us next week for another video.

Lent- Week 4:The widow
For Week 4 of Lent, we will focus on the needs of the widow.
Lent- Week 5:The immigrant
For Week 5 of Lent, we will explore the needs of the immigrant and how we can be part of bringing God's kingdom and justice.
Lent- Week 6:Racial Justice
For Week 6 of Lent, we will confront the evils of racism and racist systems that we unintentionally perpetuate. We will fast, pray and advocate for the equality, justice and reconciliation.
This is Holy Week, or Passion Week. In order to help us prepare our hearts for Easter, we will be practicing the “Daily Office,” which is an ancient discipline of stopping to pray 3 times a day as Daniel did in scripture. Set an alarm on your phone to remind you to stop & reflect on what Christ did for us & pray (am, midday, pm). It can be as long or as quick as you want. We have provided a suggested guideline (see the week 7 calendar for details) but, as always, please modify to fit your family's needs.
Stations of the Cross
The Stations of the Cross or the Way of the Cross, also known as the Way of Sorrows, refers to a series of images depicting Jesus on the day of his crucifixion and accompanying prayers. The stations grew out of imitations of Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem which is believed to be the actual path Jesus walked to Mount Calvary. The objective of the stations is to help the Christian faithful to make a spiritual pilgrimage through contemplation of the Passion of Christ.
There will be live stations open at the church from 2-7pm.
