What is Lent and why does it last forty days?

Feb. 19, 2020 @ 5:04 pm

Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. Lent comes from the Anglo Saxon word lencten, meaning “lengthen” and refers to the lengthening days of spring. The forty days represent the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan and preparing to begin his ministry. Read story

Pews & Kids Chairs

Feb. 17, 2020 @ 9:53 pm

In the cleaning of Wesley Hall after the new furnaces were put in we have realized we have several pews stored in different areas that are no longer being used. If you would like to purchase one of the extra pews the cost is $200 per pew.

We also have an overabundance of children's chairs on the 3rd floor of Wesley Hall (3rd floor only). These are FREE and come in 3 to 4 different sizes.

If you are interested in either the pews or chairs please come in to take a look or call the church office for questions, 712-246-2081. You must haul the pews or chairs yourself.
