Lent 2018

Image of cross made with ashesLent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 14;  at St. Stephen’s, we offer two worship times:

  • 11:30 am
  • 7:15 pm

Every Wednesday during Lent, February 21 – March 21, there are two gathering opportunities:

  • Midday: Worship at 11:30 am, followed by a Soup Lunch at 12:30 pm
  • Evening: Soup Supper at 6:30 pm, followed by Worship at 7:15 pm

These worship gatherings are designed to help us reflect more deeply on our walk of faith with God. The Season of Lent calls all Christians into a time of fasting, prayer, and helping those in need in order to help us prepare for the miracle of the Resurrection at Easter.

Please sign up on Sunday to help host a soup supper or lunch.
