Lent Activities 2021

Wed, Feb 17 – Sun, Apr 4
Join us as we celebrate Christ's victory over sin and death. We have 4 opportunities to worship, both in-person and online.

Traditions Services

  • 8:00am – In-Person & Online
  • 11:00am – In-Person & Online
Our Traditions service has everything you’d expect in traditional worship. Our sanctuary is filled with stained glass and oak pews, creating a warm, worship environment. The organ and piano lead the hymns, and there is a rotation of ensemble, handbells, and orchestra.

Connect Service

  • 9:30am – In-Person & Online
Our worship team provides a mix of contemporary and traditional elements. If you love church traditions and a bit more pep in your music, Connect is the perfect place for you. You can expect things like corporate prayers, the grand piano mixed with the drums,  electric guitar, and weekly communion.

Freedom Service

  • 11:07am – In-Person & Online
Freedom will wake you up with a full band, lighting effects, and creative elements. This modern worship space will provide a spiritual connection. No matter your church background, you'll fit right in. Come dressed, how you feel comfortable. Our goal is to create an environment where you can meet God and have your life changed.

Holy Week

Holy Week begins on March 28th with the waving of palm branches while shouting "Hosanna!" to the confusion of one ritual and creation of another, to the sham trial and gathering of the mob shouting "Crucify Him!" to the slow painful journey to the cross ending with a triumphant shout and darkening skies, Holy Week captures the most important week in the history of the faith. We remember as we worship the One who gave His life for us.

40-Day Lent Devotions

Join us for the journey from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday. These 40 days is a time of preparation. Jesus gave everything for us–let's make this time special. Devotions will post online at 6:00 am each morning.

Pastors Philip, Brad, David, Faith, and Matt will rotate recorded devotional thoughts each day. You can watch them at noon each day on our social networking pages or our website.
