“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30.

The Season of Lent is a great time to reevaluate our priorities. In Matthew 11, Jesus speaks to us reminding us to lay down our heavy burdens and pick up his yoke. What are you holding which is weighing you down? What can you pick up which will renew your energy?
Join us Wednesday, March 2 at 7 PM for an Ash Wednesday Service. And then Sundays in Lent as we study the Book of Jonah.

Also, consider having a regular time of prayer, Scripture reading, and meditation this season. Here are some resources to guide you:
