Lent is a season of preparation for seeing the world in a new way at Easter. We can’t just shift our perspective without preparation. At St. David’s there are numerous opportunities for prayer, study, and giving to help you prepare to encounter to living Christ.
Lent begins with a solemn service of Holy Eucharist, including the imposition of ashes. Two services at 10:00 am and 7:30 pm.
Annual Fish and Chips Supper
This year the event is catered by Kinnelon’s own, Tastefully British on Saturday, April 13th. Additionally, this year we will be offering both fish and chicken options. Tickets are $20 per order (additional $1 fee for credit card purchases) and will be available at the church beginning March 17th or online any time. For more information, or to purchase tickets CLICK HERE.
During the Season of Lent, Rev. Jon will be leading a Bible Study on the story of the Passion of Jesus Christ, highlighting the role of the women in the stories. Throughout Christian history, women have been too often overlooked as faith leaders. In the first three weeks, we will explore three particular incidences of women in these stories. During the final two weeks, we will engage in a study of the Stations of the Cross from the perspective of the women in and around the stories.
The study group will meet on the five Sundays in Lent, immediately after the 10:00 am worship service.
Our worship schedule continues with a special focus on prayer and preparation each Sunday. Two services at 8:00 am and 10:00 am. For more information, CLICK HERE.

People often take on additional spiritual activities during Lent. If you would like to add additional worship to your spiritual life this season, consider attending our mid-week service of Holy Eucharist with healing prayers. Thursdays at 9:30 am.
