All Ages Lenten Art Project

“I am the vine, you are the branches”


All ages Lenten art project!!!

In the auditorium, every Sunday during Lent, before and after worship.

Using branches and art materials provided, design and decorate a branch to creatively express the unique human God created when God made you.


  • Come and experiment with art materials.
  • Ignore any self-critical thoughts.
  • Allow yourself to play.
  • Honor your creation.
  • Leave your completed branch so it can be displayed on the vine.
  • Encourage others to participate.

“Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing.”
John 15:4-5

Tuesdays…In the Kitchen with the Pastor

All are invited to gather at our church hearth, the kitchen, for an afternoon of keeping company.soup

We’ll make long simmering soups, bake sweet smelling treats, and tend our hungering hearts.

The afternoon will offer us a time for swapping stories, chopping vegetables, drinking tea, reading scripture, and drawing closer to the warmth of the Spirit.

No need to rsvp, come by when you can, bring some soup ingredients or a friend or just yourself. There’s room at the hearth for everyone.

Tuesdays 1:00 0 3:00

Come when you wish, stay as long as you want.
