Lent 2021

Rising Out of Darkness

We hope you will join us for midweek worship at 7 p.m. each Wednesday. Throughout the season we will explore the theme, Rising Out of Darkness

The prophet Isaiah wrote: 

The people who walked in darkness
    have seen a great light;
those who lived in a land of deep darkness—
    on them light has shined.  (Isaiah 9:2, NRSV)

While our minds may hear this theme along with these words of scripture and immediately venture to the past year living through the pandemic, they are really a beautiful testimony to the life we lead day today—especially during the season of Lent. Our journey follows Jesus as he makes his way to Jerusalem for his final week. We mark the time with an acknowledgement of our own sinfulness and the good news that is to come on Easter morning. We give thanks for the light that cannot be extinguished even in the darkest night. And we rise up newly made by God for God’s purposes.

Join us for these special events:

  • Through April 11, 8 a.m.—Daily Livestream Morning Prayer. The pastors will be reading from the book: Lent and Easter Wisdom from St. Augustine by Agnes Cunningham
  • Feb. 24, March 3, 10, 17 and 24 at 7 p.m.—Wednesday Evening Lenten worship—a spoken-only service, in-person with attendance limited to 50 people—registration required. Sign up online. These services will also be livestreamed.
