Lent begins

On March 1st (following a night of revelry at our Mardi Gras potluck!) we mark the beginning of Lent - the forty day period preceding our Easter celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Not sure what this is all about? Check out our Lenten Primer to learn more.

Monthly service prays for peace

There are many places in need of our prayers for peace in the new year, and at our February peace prayer service we learned about the Sudan and prayed for an end to the violence and ethnic conflict in that nation. Remember, our peace prayer service is held the first Monday of each month at 7 p.m., and at each service in 2006 we will be focusing on a different part of the world in need of peace. We would love to have you join us!
