Taizé Worship on Wednesday evenings during Lent - March 4 & 11, 6:30 pm, in the Chapel
“Sung prayers” scripture readings, intercessory prayers, and silent meditation will encourage
worshipers to reflect on their
journey through the season of Lent. Each participant is given a candle which
symbolically represents Christ, the light of the
world. Members are joined by people of many faiths in this quiet, ecumenical
service of worship. Services in the style of the
Taizé Community in France, through songs which, when repeated, become prayers within the heart, scripture, read by
worshipers, and meditation, the quiet which allows the person to commune with God, provide that opportunity.
Join Us for Breakfast - Sunday, March 8, 8:30-10:30 am
Join us for Manna & More, our fellowship breakfast. We will be serving biscuits and gravy, pancakes
with assorted toppings &
sausage, fruit and beverages. The cost is $3 for adults and $1 for children 10 and younger. We look forward to seeing you!
