An intergenerational Lenten Fair will be held on Wednesday evening, February 10 at 6:30 p.m. Everyone—of all ages—is invited to gather in the Family Life Center to participate in an experiential evening of several activities that will help us deepen our understanding of the Lenten season. As the community of faith gathers, we will remember Jesus Christ’s journey towards the cross. We will engage in unique practices of prayer, repentance, and giving. We will end our evening with a brief time of worship in the Chapel.
