“Narnia” for Lent!

Vincent Church will be presenting a Lenten worship and sermon series on the first story in “The Chronicles of Narnia” by C.S. Lewis: “The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.”  The book was written as a story for children that would reveal for them in a fanciful way the story and truth of the Gospel message.  Each week in worship, the congregation will learn about this classic story and a corresponding sermon on the Gospel themes. 

Pause for Prayer

There is a movement inviting people to “Pause for Prayer” at 7:00 p.m. each evening for all those being affected by the coronavirus pandemic – locally, nationally, and globally.  Perhaps set a phone alarm and pause for a moment of prayer.  There is power in unified prayer and a sense of connection as hearts are lifted to God for grace and healing.
