The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, given to us for our instruction in God’s ways (1 Corinthians 10:11); we are called to read, learn, study, and meditate on them to become fully developed followers of Jesus Christ. We invite you to join us on that journey, using some or all of the resources below.

Collect for The Third Sunday in Lent (7 March 2021): Heavenly Father, you made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you: Look upon the heartfelt desires of your humble servants, and stretch forth the strong hand of your Majesty to be our defense against our enemies; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, world without end. Amen.
