During the season of Lent, we will be looking around the church and sharing images, photos, paintings, and other items that help us to focus more closely on God. Let us prepare our hearts to worship…

In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. And just as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove on him. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.”

Mark 1:9-11


Holy God, You call us to a life that is marked by faith. Help us to really pay attention to our choices this day. May our life be one that reflects Your glory and Your love. May we strive to live in ways that are pleasing to You. Thank You for Your love and providential care. In Your name we pray, Amen.
