Please join us this Lenten season for Lost and Found. Rev. Amy Starr Redwine, our new pastor, will reflect on this theme Sundays through Easter (April 21) at our 8:45 and 11:00 am worship services. (See also: First VisitWorship ServicesMap)

In addition, Amy will lead a multimedia presentation and discussion of our Lenten scriptures and how they speak to this theme on Sundays from 9:45-10:45 am in our Recreation Room. These scriptures will also be discussed at Amy’s Wednesday Bible Study. All are welcome!

Count on it— there’s more joy in heaven over one sinner’s rescued life than over 99 good people in no need of rescue.
— Luke 15:7 (The Message)
