Lent & Easter 2024

The liturgical season of Lent begins on February 14. Lent is time of self-reflection and repentance, a time to slow down and reflect on God and our relationship with God. This year Oak Grove is offering a number of ways to go deeper into our lives of faith.

Ash Wednesday, February 14: Worship service for all ages at 6:30 p.m. following dinner at WoW. The service will be live-streamed for those not able to attend in person. Link to archived video of Ash Wednesday service.

Wednesday WoW for adults, February 21–March 20: We will meet each Wednesday for worship using the theme Wandering Heart: figuring out faith with Peter. WoW worship throughout Lent will feature prayer, art, poetry and music.

Sunday mornings, February 11–March 18: The Adult Faith Formation team will lead a study on Marcus Borg’s classic book, Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time. Join us at 9:00 a.m. each Sunday to join the conversation. We have eight used books for sale ($5) in the office or check your local library or bookseller for a copy.
