Lent: Looking for Signs of Transformation
Lent is the 40 day season leading us to Easter. In Lent, we will follow Jesus as he overturns tables, assumptions, and earthly powers. This is God incarnating transformation and calling us to be transformed for Love's sake. This Lent, at Church of the Good Shepherd, we will help one another embrace the call to transformation, and notice and nurture signs of God's grace breaking in. How is God inviting transformation in you? What will you need to let go of in order to let God transform you? Through prayer, study, conversation, and worship, let us follow this transforming Savior through this holy season.
 
We collect non-perishable food for the Watertown Food Pantry every Sunday. The need in our community is great, so please help us help those without. Please bring a donation with you to church!
