The season of Lent is a time of reflection, repentance, and renewal of faith. This season we will examine our own beliefs as Christians, as well as learning about other faith traditions.

Our sermon series will focus on basic truths of the Christian faith, following the New Testament lectionary readings. In keeping with our “Christianity and World Religions” Lenten study, we will also take a look at some of those themes from the perspective of other faith traditions.
