Why Choose between Ash Wednesday and Valentine's Day on February 14?

Nothing says "love" like deepening our relationship with the God who is love.

Lent begins at our Ash Wednesday worship service on February 14 at 7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary. The Broad Street Choir will sing. Communion will be served and there will be an opportunity to have ashes placed on your forehead.  This service will be live-streamed to YouTube.  Earlier in the day, from 12:00-1:00 p.m., ashes and a blessing will be offered in the Courtyard.


Lent 2024: What’s Love Got to Do with It?

This question will shape Lent this year

In preaching and teaching 1 Corinthians 13 will be our guide as we explore the breadth & depth of God’s love for us and the world. Adult classes will focus on things we love. 

  • Feb 18, noon: We love eating together at the East Market
  • Feb 25, 11:30: We love Taylor Swift (only Swifties need to attend!) 
  • Mar 3, 9:30 a.m.: We love the Annual meeting
  • Mar 10, 11:30: We love sports teams
  • Mar 17, 9:30 a.m.: We love books that give us a new perspective
  • Weekly, Sunday evenings on Zoom at 7:00 p.m. join us for Flower Power!

We invite you to use FLOWERS to deepen your spirituality during Lent. As part of the Zooms, we will plant a new bulb each week as we wait for Easter. So grab a set of cards and your planting supplies in the narthex to pollinate your Lent with flower fun.
