Ash Wednesday and Service of Healing and Wholeness

Ash Wednesday Service
Join your community for an Ash Wednesday service at 12:15 on Feb. 22.  Sandwiches will be served afterwards.  Those  who work elsewhere or go to school, please speak with Rev. Upchurch if you would like to have another service at 7 pm.

Service of Healing and Wholeness
Healing and wholeness are at the very heart of God's intention for all humanity (Isaiah 40:29-31; Ephesians 2:10). Over 1/3 of the gospel stories are devoted to Jesus' healing ministry. In the Bible, the root Hebrew and Greek words for “salvation” (shalom and sozo, respectively) both mean "wholeness/completeness.”  Feb. 28's service will be a quiet time of meditation, prayer, wholeness, and healing.
