Lent Events

Join us during the Lenten season as we prepare to celebrate the resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ. You  will find all upcoming events on this page. 

Ash Wednesday

February 17 | 9-10 am | noon-1 pm | 6-7 pm
As we continue to re:imagine this season, we are hosting a drive-thru Ash Wednesday event to kick off the Lenten season.   Please make plans to attend our drive thru event. We'll be set-up  on Chatsworth Blvd in front of the Sanctuary.  Ministry leaders will be on hand to "ash" your vehicle as an external reminder of this beginning of the Lent season.  You will also receive a Lent @ Home bag filled with items to inspire and engage you in our weekly Lenten series. Additionally, we will have an Ash Wednesday video service posted on our website that you may watch at your convenience.

Families with children ages 3-11 are invited to pick up an Easter themed box to lead them through a meaningful Lenten season. Boxes are available for pick up during our Ash Wednesday drive-thru on February 17. Stop by the church parking lot between 9-10 am or noon-1 pm or 6-7 pm.



Please join the Debrief the Sermon team on Sundays during Lent to journey together in unpacking the sermon’s meaning to each of us. In the closing weeks of the Letter to Exiles series, let’s discover and learn together as we respond and apply the challenges of the morning’s message. Just click the provided zoom link in the chat after the 9:30 am worship service. ANY and ALL are welcome to ANY or ALL of the sessions weeks (February 21, 28, March 7, 14 and 21).

All are invited to attend a quiet day retreat, Living in God's Love, on Saturday March 6 from 9 am – 3 pm held outdoors at the Southwestern Yacht Club* (2702 Qualtrough Street, San Diego, CA 92106). Designed to help you reflect, during the season of Lent, on the truth from Scripture that, "God is Love."  The words are familiar and so inviting, but how do they ring true?  Discover ways to move from a hope they are true to a reality in your relationship to God.
