ONLINE LENT RESOURCES
PRAYING THE EXAMEN
All Lent we’re going to be using the Examen, a centuries old prayer tool, to help us strengthen our relationship with God. We’re praying it in church weekly, but Pastor Fritz is challenging everyone to pray it daily as well. Here’s some tools to help:
INTO THE WILDERNESS – A VIDEO DEVOTIONAL
A team from THE HUB has produced a great weekly series of 10-minute devotional for Lent. The devotionals follow the Israelites through the desert, taking hope and inspiration along the way. Each episode also demonstrates a spiritual practice to help individuals or families connect with God.
Maundy Thursday – In-person only service with communion (no foot washing) @ 7pm
Good Friday – Zoom service @ 10AM. Video will be online by 5pm.

Westminster: What is it? What’s in it? Why does it matter?
Wednesdays, 11:00 am, Starting February 3rd
5 Sessions via zoom meeting.
In the 1640’s, in the midst of immense religious and political turmoil, the British Parliament appointed a committee to write a new, uniform standard of belief for the still evolving Church of England. Completed in 1647, this Westminster Confession would prove foundational to American Christianity and be the sole standard of belief for American Presbyterians until 1967. Over five sessions we’ll explore the origins of the Confession, what it confesses and its impact.
COVID and Worship
Both the East Palestine and Columbiana churches have moved toward a hybrid online/in person worship. Both sanctuaries will be open for worship at the normal times (9:00 Columbiana, 11:00 East Palestine). We will also be hosting Zoom worship at the same time, with Zoom participants able to see, hear and at times participate in the service. Please do not attend worship if you are worried, afraid, or at high risk of a serious COVID infection. And if you do attend worship, please be sure to mask and socially distance.
Permanent Zoom links for all worship services (East Palestine & Columbiana)
