Making the Change from Mardi Gras to Lent

As part of the Mardi Gras and Lent focused service, college students passed out festive Mardi Gras beads as people entered the church. Rev. Penny Ford's sermon focused on the history of Mardi Gras and the importance of a change of focus during Lent. We enjoyed the visual representation of distractions being stripped away as Marlan Golden and William Roberts removed the beads and decorations from the cross. After the service, everyone gathered to fellowship and enjoy a festive meal celebrating the coming Lenten season and the return of our college students!

We hope everyone will join us Wednesday Feb. 13 at 6:10p.m. for the Ash Wednesday service.
