Acton Congregational Church is hosting a Lenten Program, Experiencing the Passion Story with All Our Senses.
Join us each Wednesday in Lent to encounter the Passion Story through one of our senses. We’ll use our eyes, ears, feet, voices, and hands to receive of our Lord’s unconditional love. Come to one or come to all, and experience the Passion story again as if for the first time.
