Draw Close to God during Lent

Come Away with Jesus for Twenty Minutes a Day!

Spend twenty minutes a day during Lent praying with ancient Christian prayer practices.

Each Sunday during Lent (March 5-April 2), all are invited to gather after church from 11:40-12:30 in the Fellowship Room. Over the course of six weeks, Esther and Cynthia will introduce different ways of praying used by Saints Benedict, Ignatius, Teresa of Avila and the author of the Cloud of Unknowing.

You are invited to try out praying in one of these ways for 20 minutes each day. When we meet again on Sunday, we’ll talk about how it went, deepen our practice or try out another one.

Contact the church office to sign up.
