MID-WEEK LENTEN SERVICES

Thy Will Be Done

Not as I will, but as you will,” Jesus prayed to his Father the night before he went to the cross for our salvation.  And that is our prayer as well for Lent as we seek to do God’s will in our own lives, as we draw near to the observance of Christ’s suffering, death, and resurrection during Holy Week.  During the mid-week Lenten services we will focus on a different aspect of God’s will at work among us.  We will begin each service with a light dinner at 6:00 and worship at 7:00.
