2009 Lenten Series

“How to Communicate in Difficult Times”

This series, written by the Reverend Doctor Darryl Starnes, looks at the process of interpersonal communication,  from a Bible perspective, and challenges us to be more Christ-like in our communications.


Most of us, at one time or another in our lives, have found ourselves at an impasse with another because we did not effectively communicate our true feelings with our words and body language.


Join us on March 3, 10, 24, and 31 as we delve into this subject together.


The schedule for our Lenten Tuesdays is:


5:00 pm: Choir Rehearsal

6:00 pm: Evening Prayer

6:30 pm: Dinner

7:00 pm: Program

7:40 pm: Compline and Dismissal


Childcare is provided for those 4 and under, and there will be a children’s program for the youth of the parish.
