A Lenten Invitation

We invite you to join an RUC small group during Lent 2020. From Ash Wednesday to Easter join the adventure, challenge yourself, meet RUC friends in fellowship and contemplation.

Be bold! Contemplate! Share!

God IS where we REALLY Live
(and other surprising places)

Wednesdays of Lent, 6-7:30pm
(March 25, April 1 & 8)

Are you worried?  What keeps you up at night?
Nationalism, looming elections, racial injustice, climate change, the list goes on.  This group will gather with the UCC 2020 Lenten Devotion “Deliver Us” and add  speakers, videos, conversation and mutual support to adventure together through Lent. 

This coming week we will take a “Gambol with Grace Notes”. Grace Notes is a group that normally meets after worship for simple lunch, checking in any sharing authors and their poetry. Next Wednesday, join in for virtual pizza and our current topic, music lyrics as poetry.  We plan to have lyrics read, music played and songs sung.  

A Lenten pause: Time of Meditation and Communion
Thursdays of Lent, 12:00—1:30pm
