Singing with the Exiles

During the season of Lent this year, we will use a series titled “Singing with the Exiles.”
Wednesday Services:
11:30am (lunch and Bible Study @ noon)
7:00pm (supper @ 6pm)
Daily devotional books will be available starting Sunday, February 8. Use these devotionals starting on Ash Wednesday, and each day during Lent, to carry the theme into your prayer life. Don’t have much of a prayer/devotional life? This is a perfect opportunity to give it a go! Three to five minutes over your bowl of cereal or after you brush your teeth. It might just catch on!
Here’s my article that appeared in the February Newsletter (click here) introducing the series. Won’t you join us as we “Sing with the Exiles” even as we await our deliverance into Heaven.
