#WeChooseWelcome

Like most church congregations, we worship, study, pray and care for one another. Our passion is working together to try to make the world a better place. By doing tangible, concrete things that improve people’s lives, we honor God and live out what Jesus means when he says, “Love God and love your neighbor.” If that resonates with you, we hope you’ll come visit.

Lenten
Devotionals

The journey of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 6, and lasts until Easter Sunday, April 21.

This year we offer three different Lenten devotional resources for our journey through Lent.

The Poetry of Lent: A Lenten Companion to Mary Oliver's DevotionsThe Poetry of Lent is intended for most adults and families with kids 6th grade and up. Every journey needs a guide, and what better guide to the 40 days of Lent than the beloved poet Mary Oliver? Winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, Oliver is widely celebrated as an accessible, insightful observer of the natural world, the life of faith, and the interplay between the two.

Devotions by Mary OliverThe Poetry of Lent is a six-week journey with Oliver at your side, illuminating ancient passages of scripture, provoking bite-sized meditations on key Lenten themes, and pointing toward everyday practices for individuals and families. All you need is the devotional (available in the Narthex), a Bible, and a copy of Oliver’s wonderful poetry collection, Devotions. The poems can also be found by searching online.

Devotions features 200+ poems chosen and arranged by Mary Oliver. The poems feature Oliver’s work from her very first book of poetry, No Voyage and Other Poems, published in 1963 at the age of 28, through her most recent collection, Felicity, published in 2015.

An Illustrated Lent for Families: Reflections on PrayerFor families with children 6th grade and younger, or anyone interested in a more visual and creative devotional source we have An Illustrated Lent for Families: Reflections on Prayer..

For adults we have Field Guide on the Observance of Lent from the Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary.
