The Way of the Cross at Woodhaven (Drop in Feb. 17 – April 2)

You are invited to follow the Scripture Way of the Cross in the Mobley Memorial Garden (MMG) at Woodhaven anytime from noon on Ash Wednesday (Feb. 17) through Good Friday (April 2). This is an opportunity for worshippers to follow an ancient tradition of scriptural meditations based on Jesus’ journey to the cross on the day of His crucifixion.

According to the tradition, you’ll find 14 “stations” in the MMG beginning with Jesus’ condemnation to death and ending with his body being laid in the tomb. You can enter the garden by following one of the sidewalks near the playground to the open area at the center of the three main buildings on our campus.

Begin at the outside left entrance to the fellowship hall building. There you will find instructions in a plastic tub and materials for children to take home. Station 1 is located at the back of the waterfall. Then, proceed around the courtyard in a clockwise fashion. Stations will be on benches, windows, etc. until you have completed the journey near the front of the waterfall.

This is an outdoor event, and no sign-up is required. If other worshippers are present, please respect a social distance of at least six feet from them. We pray that these brief meditations will be meaningful to you in this Lenten season.

Discipleship Class “Sacred Purpose: Beginning at the Beginning”
Meets Wednesdays, 6:10 p.m. Class will not meet on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 17.
Facilitator: Ken Vandergriff
Location: Zoom only. Contact our church office for access link, 919-362-0127.


If we want to understand sacred purpose, God’s sacred purpose as well as our own, we should start at, well, the beginning. This study will explore Genesis 1-11, the narrative unit that scholars call the Primeval History, to see God’s sacred purpose in creating humans, how God’s purpose was distorted, and how God responds to make things right again. It’s unfortunate that too many of these formative stories we haven’t revisited since childhood. (This is a continuation of the study begun last spring and cancelled by Covid, but all participants are welcome!)
