Foot Washing----a service devoted to humility and relationships ... Experiencing God in an Apron

Sacred Traditions And Rituals
a call to connection

Reminds You to bring a Friend or two and join us for our Lenten Service 
Foot Washing

a service devoted to humility and relationships ... experiencing God in an apron

We will gather together Sunday evening, to experience ‘God in an apron!”  That humbling experience of washing feet or hands – having them washed or washing another’s.  Or, in most simply remain seated and through prayerful meditation, imagine what it would be like to find Jesus standing in front of you with a towel, pitcher and basin – waiting to wash your feet.    

And, we will have Refreshments and Fellowship immediately following the service …
