Better Together – Our Theme for This Lenten Season

By February 22, 2023March 22nd, 2023News, Worship and Pray

We are better together when we are in relationship with our loving God and Savior and when we are in relationship with one another. The stories we share with one another is an essential part of our connection to family, friends and to community. Through story we reveal what cannot be seen and make ourselves known to one another in personal and sometimes profound ways. We deepen the connections that make us human.

During this Lenten season we are invited to engage with one another through story. Our Lenten devotional highlights welcome stories from members of our congregation. They share times when they were welcomed and times when they welcomed others. Every Sunday, through Lent, we will add to the devotional daily stories of welcoming and being welcomed, Scripture, reflection questions and activities you can do with family members or friends during the week. Through these stories may we appreciate that we are better together when we welcome one another into community.

Weekly 30-minute small group time each Wednesday after the noon worship service and before the 6:30 pm service, starting March 1, will offer us intentional time with one another as we continue to share stories, reflect on our shared connections and seek to know one another wholeheartedly. Group activities for FaithTrek age kids (ages 4-5th grade) and small groups for middle and high school youth are also planned in the evening. Our nursery will be staffed to allow parents of young ones to engage with a small group. Sharing stories and making connections has no age requirements!

Our Wednesday worship service at noon and 6:30 pm invites us to pray through spoken word, moving liturgy and contemplative song through Holden Prayer around the Cross. These contemplative services invite us into meditative worship, together, that focuses on the cross and God’s promises found there.

We are truly better together, one body in Christ Jesus, and this Lenten season promises to reveal this truth to us.
