As we prepare for Holy Week, the Sparta United Methodist Church offers Contemplative Services beginning Ash Wednesday. These Quiet Services will then be offered every Wednesday throughout Lent at both 12:15 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. Following Lent, these services will continue at 12:15 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month.

The doors at the Sparta United Methodist Church are open to the re-discovery of God. These Contemplative Services are simple and beautiful while offering soothing harmonies, reflective psalms and a time of prayer and silence. During this 45 minute service, come and go as needed. Take this opportunity to step away from the noise and commotion of everyday life.

Concerned about the number of people who are gravitating to Eastern practice to find quiet in the noise of our society, Rev. Janice Sutton Lynn believes that Christians can find peace in our own tradition. Whether you have wanted to make room for silence, learn to meditate or observe the holy season of Lent, you are welcome to this important time.
