The season of Lent begins on February 10 with Ash Wednesday. We will have a quiet service of prayer, music and the imposition of ashes at 6:30 pm in the sanctuary. In the succeeding weeks, we will honor this traditional season of reflection by engaging each week one of the five goal areas lifted up at our fall congregational meeting: worship, identity, ministry, function, and partnership with AAF preschool. There will be a short reflection piece or article for you to read, available online and in hard copy, in advance of each week. Then after worship on Sunday, we will re-gather for conversation to hear reactions and ideas in each goal area, so IUC can discern how God is leading us forward.
