We invite your help in creating a station. You can choose to artistically represent any one of the station themes that inspire you. It will be first come first serve, and you can e-mail Pastor Jessica with your selection or to find out what stations remain available ( ). Let the Scripture associated with the station you choose be your inspiration, and be creative! Use any medium you’d like, as long as it will fit on a table or an easel. The tables will be set up around the outside of the church, and each will have a plaque with the Scripture on it. The congregation will be invited to visit each table, read the Scripture, and ponder the artwork. In addition, Holy Communion will be available throughout the evening in the sanctuary. We hope you will be a part of what promises to be a powerful journey for worship, prayer, and contemplation.
