WORSHIP at 5PM!

This Sunday, we begin the season of Lent. Our worship theme this Lent is “The Crosses We Carry.” The Season of Lent is observed as a time of spiritual renewal.

The Crosses we Carry today are different but as real as the one Jesus carried to his death. And sometimes the crosses we carry are so heavy, we need help carrying them. That’s what the community of the Church is for.Read more...
