Holy Week

*Dr. Michael Bos preaching

Begin Holy Week by walking in Jesus' footsteps along “The Way of Sorrow.” The “Via Dolorosa,” a street in Jerusalem, is also the path that Jesus walked on his way to the cross.

Walking the Path of Lent with Friends

The Marble Women’s Ministry invites everyone on a 40-day journey of shared stories, poems, prayers, art, music and activities exploring different kinds of friendships. 1 John 4:11 reminds us of our friendship with God, “Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” Visit MarbleWomen.com for this opportunity to strengthen your friendship with God, Jesus and each other along the way. We may even redefine what friendship means as we move forward from the pandemic to a time where we reconnect with old friends and make some new. This year, walk the path of Lent with friends.

Lilies will be placed in the Sanctuary in honor or memory of loved ones whose names will be listed onscreen at the end of Worship on Easter Sunday, April 17, as well as in the online bulletin.
