Three Sunday evenings during Lent: February 18th, March 4th & 18th at 6pm.
Most of us have experienced suffering in our lives but few of us know how to voice our sorrow Biblically. In Scripture laments give us a language of sorrow to speak to God and one another. The services will be composed of three elements: Scripture, Song and Prayer. Come join us as we learn to speak the language of lament and hold on to the hope of the Gospel.
