Ashes-to-Go on Ash Wednesday

 
 
All are welcome to receive ashes at First Christian Church
Our Ash Wednesday worship this year will be our active service to those who come by to receive ashes during Ashes-to-Go from 7am-7pm on Ash Wednesday, February 22.
 
 

Blessings-to-Go each Wednesday in Lent

 
 
All are welcome to receive a warm blessing and beverage
New this year, we will offer Blessings-to-Go to the community each Wednesday during Lent. Like Ash Wednesday, we’ll have a station in the parking lot and will offer a warm blessing and beverage (coffee, tea, hot chocolate, water).
 
Come sit or drive by. We’ll open the station three times a day—morning, noon, and evening. You may also request a prayer if you like.
 
Blessings-to-Go will take place March 1, 8, 15, 22, 29 and April 5 from 7-9am, 11am-1pm, and 5-7pm.
 
 

Sacred Space – a time for praying

 

Join us Thursdays at 6:00pm

Sacred Space offers a moment of pause to be in the presence of God. Each week, a variety of engaging, life-giving spiritual practices—readings, music, movement, silence, and other creative approaches—will guide our prayer. Sacred Space endeavors to be an open and safe place to meditate, commune, be renewed and develop and strengthen the spiritual practice of prayer.

Sacred Space is a hybrid gathering. Join us on Zoom or in person in the Chapel.  

We will gather at 5:50 pm, and our Sacred Space time will begin at 6:00 pm.

 

Friday Coffee Chat

 
 
End the week with great company!
 
Brew your favorite coffee or tea, grab a bit of breakfast, and enjoy a time to connect with others.
