Lent: Prayers Rising
Lent begins on February 10th, Ash Wednesday.  Under the theme “Prayers Rising,” each Wednesday (2/10 – 2-16) we invite you to these opportunities at St. Stephen’s:
9 a.m.: Bible Study in Agape Annex
Noon:  Individual Silent Meditation in the Sanctuary
(Simple Imposition of Ashes station on 2/10)
1 p.m.:  Prayer Walk (and talk) with Pastor Kathy
5:00 p.m.: Joyful Noise (Sanctuary)

6:15 p.m.: Worship (Holy Communion on 2/10)
7:00 p.m.:  Choir

Praying and breathing, eating and drinking, singing and worshiping, forgiving and reconciling, serving and seeking justice, dying and grieving. As people of faith, these are practices we share  Each year as the days begin to lengthen, followers of Christ add devotional times to re-center. These opportunities help us to re-orient ourselves and our faith communities as we prepare to celebrate the Festival of the Resurrection.

“Blanket of Prayer”
Each Sunday and throughout the week, your prayer requests will be received and shared. Let the office know if you are willing to prayerfully intercede, during Lent, for the needs of others!
