Lenten Day of Reflection —
Saturday, February 20, 9:30am-1:00pm —
Facilitated by Pastor Anderson and Susan McBerry
The Lutheran observance of Lent is reflective as well as penitential.   We regard this season as a time of special spiritual opportunity to contemplate the Passion of Christ, a time of self-examination and repentance, and a time of growth in faith and grace.  While it is a somber time of remembrance, it is also a time for joy and rejoicing, for we are saved through the death and resurrection of our Lord.  You are invited to set aside this Saturday morning to reflect and be present for a time of quiet. Register at the office.
