Wednesdays in Lent – Created for Community at 7 pm on Zoom
We are one community in Christ, disciples who grow and pray together, even when separated by distance. This year for Lent, we will live out that community connection in a bigger way, by joining together with congregations across the Genesee Finger Lakes Conference over Zoom for a midweek Lenten series.

Drawing from the Sunday texts 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 in a simple liturgy of word and prayer. At 7:30, those who wish, may continue with an option to grow deeper in community, either through conversation around the day’s text, or through learning a new prayer practice that expands upon the week’s theme.

Each congregation will also participate in a shared commitment to address hunger relief or food insecurity in their local community. Look for opportunities to be a Hunger Activist at Bethlehem this Lent.

The link for each Wednesday service will be located on the Calendar of Events on our BLC Website
and emailed each Tuesday in our Ready for Worship email.
