Ash Wednesday Services, March 5th

Our Adult Discipleship Facilitator, Lisa Hickman, has prepared a list of scripture readings to be used daily during Lent, beginning with Ash Wednesday. The theme for the Lenten season focuses on Galatians 5:22-23, the Fruit of the Spirit. There is also a suggested practice for devotions -- pray, read, reflect, connect and practice.
You will find this Lenten reading list in the racks by each door of the church or click here.
