Lent & Easter Activities
Lent, which begins on Ash Wednesday, is a time for forgiveness, healing and renewal. It is a season of the church year that reminds us that, through confession, repentance and amendment of life, God forgives us and empowers us to forgive others.
Lenten Suppers & Programs
Each Wednesday during Lent, we have a Pot Luck Supper and Program beginning at 6 p.m. Recent years have included talks on outreach ministries in Goldsboro, and a series on sin, forgiveness, and reconciliation.
