Lent at First United: What’s In Store?
Throughout the season of Lent we will be focusing on the words of the prophets. We will dive deep into the prophetic works of the Bible and see what God might have in store for this church. Where is God calling us a community, who is God calling us to serve, what kind of future will we devote ourselves to building? This will be our theme, particularly as we are finalizing the vision for the church’s future that we are building through the Capital Campaign.

From A to Z
The Book of Lamentations. Just the thing to follow a joyous baptism, hmm? Verse after verse of bitter lament, exactly what one would want to hear after the words of God’s grace flow over the brow of a child of God. But we’re in the season of Lent; we are preaching about the prophets. And, in Biblical tradition, the Book of Lamentations is written by the prophet Jeremiah, it is the emotional pathos of the book of Jeremiah.
