LENTEN SERMON SERIES
JOHN: THE GOSPEL OF LIGHT AND LIFE
Learning how to shine a light in the darkness is a skill we all wish we could learn. During the season of Lent, we are studying the light and life found in Jesus Christ and learning how it changes the lives of those who follow him.
THE CARON PARENT & FAMILY SUPPORT GROUP
In response to COVID-19, this group is now meeting virtually. Please contact Sarah McDade at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on scheduling and how to connect online. The mission is to help ourselves in order to help our loved ones who are struggling or recovering from addiction.
HOLY WEEK 2020
You may be wondering how we will celebrate Holy Week this year. Rest assured that your worship team has been creatively working to discover new ways for all of us to experience this sacred week together. We will begin with worship on Palm Sunday, April 5 and walk through the entire week with Jesus. We will celebrate Holy Thursday where we remember the last supper Jesus shared with his disciples. We will gather at the foot of the cross on Good Friday and we will join together in celebration on Easter morning. Even though we cannot be together physically, plan on being together virtually as we honor Christ and his great sacrifice and triumph.
