SATURDAY NIGHT LENTEN EXPERIENCE
If you want to slow down and be still during this season of Lent, consider coming to the sanctuary on Saturday nights.  We’ll gather at 8:00 PM and finish by 9:00 PM.  You will experience quiet ways to read, pray, be, listen, share, and consider God together through guided spiritual practices introduced each week by Shirley Folkerts.  Come once, come twice, or come every Saturday until Easter—all are welcome! Please contact Shirley Folkerts at: Shirley.Folkerts@dordt.edu with questions.
