Join us to celebrate Easter!

 

We will gather just beyond the West Parish cemetery arch for an outdoor Easter Sunrise Service at 8 AM.   Feel free to park around the green and walk over, or park just off the circle, if you need.   We will greet the new morning, sing, and share in communion! Ballard Vale members will join us!

At 10am, we will gather in our sanctuary and online for a traditional Easter Worship for all ages!  Everyone is welcome as we'll sing songs, listen to reflections and hear Rev. Katrina's message.

Ash Wednesday Service

Wednesday, March 2 7:00 pm

Join us in the West Parish sanctuary for a reflective service that ushers us into the season of Lent.  We will focus on the invitation to “return to God“ and wonder what that can mean for us, through readings, song, and the traditional imposition of ashes. All are welcome to this prayerful service that taps into our ancient traditions.

Theme for Lent: Making Space

March 12 - April 17, 2022

During Lent, we'll gather every Wednesday at 7:00 pm to explore and experience various ways to "make space", to clear room in our lives to listen, feel, heal and pay attention to God.  All events will be via Zoom unless otherwise noted below.

 

March 9 - Making Space through Giving Up

March 16 - Making Space through Meditation

March 23 - Making Space through Worship (LiveStream and in the Sanctuary)

March 30 - Making Space through Creativity

April 6 - Making Space through Decluttering

 

Maundy Thursday Service

Thursday, April 14, 7:00 pm

Gather in the Sanctuary or join us on line for this powerful service during Holy Week. This night remembers the last supper that Jesus shared with the disciples, and will end with Tenebrae, the reading of the passion story as candles are extinguished. Come and sink into the dark stillness as we prepare for Easter.   (LiveStream and in the Sanctuary)

Friday, April 15, Noon
