Created For Community: Lenten Series

A joint project of the Genesee Finger Lakes Conference 

Though many of us have been apart for a full year now, still we know we are one community in Christ, disciples who grow and pray together. This year for Lent, we will live out that community connection in a bigger way, by joining together as a conference over Zoom for a midweek Lenten series.


Drawing from the Sunday lectionary and stories from Mark’s Gospel, we will reflect together on the various ways we are called to be community: with creation, with the saints, with our neighbor, with those on the margins, and with Christ.


Each Wednesday at 7pm, we will join in worship together around a different theme, led by pastors across the conference. At 7:30, we will offer an opportunity for those who wish to grow deeper in community, either through conversation around the day’s text, or through exploring a prayer practice that expands upon the week’s theme.
