Second Sunday of Lent

Hey Everyone,

I hope you are all well and finding time for reflection during this lenten season. I know that I feel grateful for the thoughtful reflections shared in our Cost of Discipleship Reading Group. We had a great first gathering, which is available for viewing on our YouTube page (

Worship this Sunday, March 5 will be a little different. This week, we have the opportunity to host Grace Christian Fellowship as both congregations welcome back the AICM Mission Team. During the service, we’ll have the chance to hear about their trip and how God used them as light in Show Low, AZ. Given these testimonies, I’ll be offering a shorter homily that summarizes all three lectionary texts into one central theme. If you’d like to read the texts before Sunday, you can find them at the bottom of the online Order of Worship below.

We are also blessed to be able to celebrate communion with Grace Christian Fellowship. If you’re joining us via Zoom, please bring your own elements to the broadcast.

And, if that wasn’t enough, we’re also having our first-of-the-month potluck with Grace Christian Fellowship! This month’s theme is St. Patrick and all things Irish, but you are always welcome to bring whatever you have or nothing at all.

I hope you’re able to join us for this special Sunday. Here are your announcements for the week ahead:
