LENT 2019
March 5: Lenten Book Study Commences:  10 a.m. at St. James. This Lent we are reading together, Everyday Skeptics: Devotions for Spiritual Growth. This book focuses on the words of the prophets, who often faced a skeptical reception. How do the words of past prophets continue to live today? How do they inform our faith formation and our actions as a church? The daily devotions have been written by a wide variety of contributors who do local and global ministry with The United Church of Canada. All are welcome to join in our Lenten conversations of this book. Book is $10 and 15 copies are available for purchase. Please let Rev. Grant know if you would like a copy.
March 6 Ash Wednesday: We offer two Ash Wednesday joint services which take place at St. James. The first service is at 3 p.m. and the second takes place at 6:30 p.m. Both services include reflective Taizé music, prayer, scripture, the imposition of ashes and the Sacrament of Holy Communion as we begin our journey to the cross. Please come (especially if you have never attended an Ash Wednesday service in the past) and invite a friend to join you. Everyone is welcome.
March 10: First Sunday in Lent with Sacrament of Holy Communion for our Lenten journey.
