Step by Step - Lent 2023

For your steadfast love is before my eyes, and I walk in your faithfulness. – Psalm 26:3
We are on a journey together. The world is full of different paths. Where are we going? What roads do we chose? And how do we walk them?
This Lenten season, we pray that Jesus will show us how to walk, step by step, and guide our feet. As we make our way toward Easter, we will learn and study, step by step, how to love, how to pray, how to read scripture, how to worship, and how to forgive. We will walk the path of faithfulness, remembering that Jesus is the way, and the truth, and the life.
Below, you’ll find ways to begin this holy season together. Come to our activities, hear our new devotionals, worship with us as we prepare for the Resurrection. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date. I hope you join us in new ways as we learn to walk like Jesus.

Every Tuesday until Easter, you’ll hear a different pastor give their thoughts on how we can devote ourselves to our church, our community, and the teachings of Christ.
We need your help! Easter Sunday is going to be a big day, and it won’t happen without volunteers. From holding open doors to following up with first-time visitors, there is so much that needs to be done. Please fill out our Easter Volunteer Form!
