Out of the Ashes: A Service of Lament in a Season of Disaffiliation

Out Of The Ashes Banner

Join us Thursday, April 20 at 11 a.m. CDT for an online worship experience intended to help us speak into the pain of the moment.

This will be a time to name the loss that we feel as we cry out to God, while also leaning into hope as we seek the new thing God is doing in our midst.

This worship experience is the beginning of a series of opportunities to gather and share and look forward to a renewed expression of our faith and our church.

'to provide for those who mourn in Zion—to give them a garland instead of ashes' Isaiah 61:3

  • Join worship leaders who are focused on working together toward a new expression of faithfulness.
  • An opportunity to gather with other United Methodists for naming our loss and for encouragement and hope.
