The Season of Lent

Starts: February 10 @ 8:00am
Ends: March 27 @ 3:00pm

The Lenten season begins Ash Wednesday, February 10, and runs through Easter.
At FUMC we will begin our Lenten season with two reflective Ash Wednesday services on February 10th in Wesley Hall. The first service coincides with our first Lenten Lunch at noon. The evening service will begin at 7pm. Both services will include the imposition of ashes.

Lenten Lunches will begin on Ash Wednesday, February 10th. Bring your own lunch, and we will have a very informal service of music and a lesson. FUMC will provide drinks and dessert. Lenten Lunches will be every Wednesday at noon in Wesley Hall. The final lunch will be March 23rd.
