Lent Opportunities

Lent is a time of reflection and penitence, an opportunity to recenter ourselves on what matters: our relationship with God, and what God has done for us in Jesus Christ. This year, we have a series of chances for everyone to carve out some time to reconnect with God this season.

Fat Tuesday Pancake Dinner

Lent begins on March 6th, which means before we get penitent and self-reflective, we feast! Join us from 6pm to 8pm on March 5th for a pancake supper, one last hurrah before we return on Ash Wednesday to remember we are dust and to dust we shall return. We will have pancakes and waffles, as well as sausage and a huge helping of real maple syrup. No religious affiliation necessary – just come enjoy the meal.

Ash Wednesday

“Remember you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”

Ash Wednesday is the first day of the season of Lent. We invite you to join us at 7pm on March 6th for a solemn worship service when we remember our mortality, our reliance on God, and receive the sign of the cross in ashes on our foreheads. If you have a conflict in the evening, you’re welcome to stop by the Malden Center Station where Pastor Emily and congregants will be offering ashes “on the go” from 7:30am-8:30am.

Lenten Vespers

We invite you to join us for simple suppers on Wednesday nights followed by a quiet, reflective evening prayer service filled with both singing and silence. Children are welcome to join us.

Dinner at 6:15pm.
Worship at 7:00pm.

Practicing Prayer

We all look for ways to connect: to people, to the universe, to what is holy in the world. Whatever you believe, you may want to find ways to deepen your connections to the divine. At 11:15 in the morning on Sundays, we invite you to explore the basics of five prayer practices, finding new ways to connect with God and with one another.
