Ecumenical Lenten Series – Wednesdays March 1 through March 29th

Our Ecumenical Lenten Series this year focuses on the “I AM” statements in the Gospel of John for the sake of intentional reflection on and proclamation of God becoming flesh.  The Gospel of John reminds us — which, during Lent, is an especially important thing to remember — that to believe in Jesus is to hold the fullness of Jesus’ humanity and Jesus’ divinity together.  This Lenten series helps us imagine that what Jesus puts after “I AM” in the Gospel of John shapes our reality.

March 8th Reverend Robert Tufton will preach at Heidelberg United Church of Christ

March 15th Rev. Marianne Unger will preach at Saint Maria Goretti Church
