Journey to Easter

Welcome! We have a variety of events, programs, and services for all ages to take you through your Lent journey.

Into the Wilderness: “Jesus was in the wilderness forty days…” The church’s season of Lent (Ash Wednesday, February 14-Saturday, March 23) is our opportunity to return to faithfulness following in the path of Jesus from temptation and rebellion, fear and shame, rejection and condemnation preparing for the event of Easter resurrection. The season will be accompanied by sacred worship and song, devotional, studies, service and more.

Lenten Adult ReCharge Groups

Walking with Wesley: Join us for a six-week journey as we delve into the life and influence of John Wesley on the people called “Methodists.” Wesley had a deep personal yearning to know God, and to share his commitment as a Christ-follower with others. We will learn about John Wesley’s successful approach to making disciples, and how the early practices of the “Methodists” are still beneficial in our time. This exploration into our rich Wesleyan tradition will be led by co-teachers, Justin Masterman, and Rev. Mike Ebersohl. Meets in-person Sunday mornings. The book used is A Blueprint for Discipleship. Sign up here or on the church app.

Walking in the Wilderness: Into the Wilderness we follow Jesus— walking deeply, soulfully, a path many others have trod of self-examination, repentance, and making room for the Holy One in our lives. As followers of Jesus, our task during Lent is to clear away the clutter from our hearts, to make space for God’s spirit and God’s shaping of us so we can be fully present to God and our neighbors. Books can be reserved/purchased through the church office for $10. Sign up here or on the church app.

  • Sundays, February 18-March 17 at 10:45 am, led by Ginny Swiatek

Faith in Life: Rather than reading one large text, this group gathers its material from the news. Current happenings serve as the launch point for open discussions on how these might impact or influence our Christian communities. New topics are discussed each week, so feel free to drop in at any time. Meets in-person Sunday mornings. Led by Alan McCurdy.
