Lent 2021 Worship and Spirituality Series
Growing with the Gospels
After a year of pandemic life that has often left us feeling restricted, we are ready for some growth! With our worship infused with some of the most the beloved teachings of Jesus such as the parable of the sower, the true vine, the parable of the fig tree, and more, we will grow with the Gospels this Lenten season.
In addition to reading and preaching on these stories in worship, we will bring the message of growth home—literally—by growing paperwhite flowers from bulb to flower. Using soil, the stuff of life, mixed with Ash Wednesday ashes, we will care for flowers as a hands-on spiritual practice to bring us through the Lenten season and on to the new life of Easter.
You are invited to drive by the church on Ash Wednesday, February 17 from 3:00-7:00PM to pick up a flower bulb, pot, and soil for each member of your family. If you can’t make it to the church, call or email and we’ll bring everything to you!
