2015 Midweek Lenten Sermon Series

The Sound of Silence

Services at Noon and 7:30pm every Wednesday in Lent. 
Evening services sing the Holden Evening Prayer

     This sermon series will listen to “silences” in the Bible and see how silence is an important spiritual principle for our lives.  Silence can function powerfully for us from being the well of creativity to the place where we find hope in the face of life’s grimmest realities.  


Wed.                          The Silence of God                                            Mark 15: 33-34

Mar. 25


Holy Week Wed.        Silence at the Tomb                                            Mark 15:42-46
