Lenten Sermon Series:

“Close Encounters”
Sundays, February 14 - March 13

Close encounters. We read about them on the covers of grocery store tabloids. We watch dramatic reenactments on the Sci-Fi channel. People allegedly are confronted by a being from another realm and their world is never the same.

In our Lenten sermon series we will consider a host of personal, one on one encounters between individuals of this realm meeting the One from beyond the stars. An encounter with Jesus Christ will transport them and us into a new, dynamic, realm of possibilities. Prepare yourself for a strange and wonderful encounter that will prove to forever change your world.

Lenten Bible Study:

The Work of the People:Forty Days A Journey Through the Desert of Lent

Wednesdays (began Feb. 17) from 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. in 214

Thursdays (began Feb. 18) from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. in 214

Before light, there is darkness; before birth, there is pain. Before many of our meaningful moments, there is a time of preparation, a time of longing. The Christian season of Lent is the forty days set aside (from Ash Wednesday through Holy Saturday) to enter into the wilderness of our souls. What we may find there may test the very core of who we are.  During this five-week study, we will be watching short videos on the following topics: reading poetry, studying scripture, reflecting on questions and practices of Lent. We will be offering two different days and times that you can participate in this study.  If you are unable to attend the Lenten study on either Wednesdays or Thursdays you can also view the videos and access the discussion guides by going to Please contact Pastor Dave for the password.

Maundy Thursday Service:

Thursday, March 24 at 7:00 p.m.

Join us on Maundy Thursday, March 24, at 7:00 p.m. as the Epworth Music, Worship and Drama teams present one of Christianity’s most significant events as brilliantly portrayed by Leonardo Da Vinci: The Last Supper.

This Renaissance masterpiece is brought to life in Ruth Elaine Schram’s remarkable work “The Living Last Supper.” The music passionately captures the pathos of the event while the disciples speak, expressing their innermost thoughts with brief but poignant monologues. Join us as we begin the completion of our Lenten journey to Christ’s death and Resurrection.

Good Friday Prayer Vigil:

Friday, March 25 12:00 noon - 3:00 p.m.
