Lenten Season
Wednesday March 1st at 7:00pm

Lent is a season of reflection and preparation before the celebrations of Easter. By observing the 40 days of Lent, we remember Jesus Christ's withdrawal into the desert for 40 days. The season of Lent begins Ash Wednesday, March 1st, with the “Imposition of Ashes.” Each Wednesday in Lent will include a soup supper at 6 followed by worship at 7. Sign-up on the Welcome Table to provide food for these simple soup suppers. Plan to join us for this special time of worship, food, and fellowship!

It doesn't happen often that inclement weather causes us to cancel Sunday worship, but it is wise for us to be prepared just in case. In the event the weather is frightful on a Sunday morning please check this website for the status of Sunday morning events. Status will be posted on the site by 8:00 am. Also, cancellations will be broadcast on 102.7 FM WCPZ and 96.1.

If there is a level 2 or 3 snow emergency for Erie County, all worship services and weekday church events will be cancelled. If you get the word about a worship cancellation, please help us pass the word by calling friends and relatives. The last thing we want is someone needlessly braving dangerous roads and then arriving to an icy parking lot and an empty sanctuary.
