Lenten Creativity

You are invited to join others on a journey of reflection and transformation on Saturdays March 14, 21, and 28 from 10:00 am-12:00 noon. There will be intentional areas holding sacred space for activities. In the Social Hall there will supplies available to color mandalas, paint rocks and to experience the creative process of Soul Collage. The Fireplace Room will be a quiet space of silence to reflect, journal, read a devotional, listen to music, knit, or just be, and the Chapel will be available to meditate, walk the labyrinth, pray and experience the prayer stations. I hope you may choose this Lenten season to join us on this journey!
