Dorisanne accepted the call and will begin her ministry with Watts Street some time during the summer. Thanks be to God! We offer deep gratitude to the search committee, chaired by Jim Drennan, for their careful and patient work over the last year. Other committee members are Amy Armstrong, Dick Chorley, Jennifer Martin, Doris Cooper McCoy, Amy Rublein, Jim Travis, Gordon Whitaker, Logan Wilkins, and Blanche Williams.Posted on Apr 7, 2014
Lent and Holy Week at Watts Street
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 5, with a 6:30 p.m. worship service in the sanctuary, including the imposition of ashes, a vivid reminder of our mortality. Supper at 5:30 in the Fellowship Hall precedes the service. Lenten devotional resources for adults are available in the foyers. March 9 is the First Sunday in Lent. In worship, the color changes to violet, and we bring in the Cross instead of the Christ candle. We refrain from singing our Alleluias and reserve that praise for Easter Day. Holy Week concludes the season, starting with Palm/Passion Sunday on April 13, moving to Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and concluding with the Easter Day celebration of the Resurrection.
