This service will focus on healing the spiritual calluses that prevent us from hearing and responding to God in our midst. After the service, a basket of hand lotion will be available for a prayer aid. Each tube or bottle will have a sentence Psalm prayer to pray while moisturizing your hands. Worshipers are encouraged to keep praying throughout Lent using the prayer. If you would like to make a donation please do. The worship committee will be using the donation to buy gift cards for District 205 students who need food assistance. Take one for yourself and another.
For these people’s senses have become calloused. Matthew 13:15 CEB
