Join us for worship during this Lenten season. We will be focusing on the Psalm of Ascent, which are Psalm 120-134, with our series "Songs for the Journey."
If you look in your Bible, you'll see that the superscription at the top of each psalm says "A song of ascent." It's thought that this is a collection of psalms which the Hebrew faithful would recite on their way UP to Jerusalem for one of the annual festivals. We will use these Psalms in our own journey towards the events of Good Friday and Easter, using one of these psalms each week, paired with a New Testament passage about Jesus.

Our outdoor prayer path has been refreshed for lent! You are invited to come and walk all eight stations anytime during Lent and Holy Week. Words and images are directly on the poster and each cross. We invite you to take your time and to reflect in these words. A bench is available at each station. You may also scan a QR code with your smartphone to access a song on the respective Psalm. We hope these interactive stations will help you have a meaningful Lent and Easter season.
