Bach Cantata for Lent

Sunday, March 8

11:00 AM in the Sanctuary

Gottes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit (God’s Time Is the Best of All Times)
Johann Sebastian Bach

Featuring the Westminster Choir accompanied by an orchestra of period instruments.

Compline Services

Wednesdays, March 4, 11, 18 & 25 and April 1

7-7:30 PM in the Sanctuary

Join musicians from Westminster as we offer services of sung prayer called Compline, or “Prayer at the Close of the Day.” This short service (30 minutes or less) can become a meaningful part of your week and Lenten discipline. No two services will be the same.  Consider making these services part of your family’s experience with Lent, the devotion and prayer preceding a committee meeting, or just as a gentle way to offer prayers and the end of the day. You can find an outline of the service in our hymnal on p. 31.

Centering Prayer

Mondays, March 2, 9, 16, 23 & 30

4-5 PM in Westminster Room

Using this ancient form of coming together, all are welcome to join this time of reflection, sharing and prayer. Led by Amey Upton.
