First Church in Cambridge Sanctuary and Margaret Jewett Hall 

Join us this year for First Church’s 2020 Women’s Lenten Retreat, on Saturday, March 7. We will be resting in some time for silence, exploring creative expression, and enjoying a nourishing lunch and connections. Everyone is welcome! Whether you are new to First Church, have been here for decades, or somewhere in between, this is a time for reflection, Lenten preparation, and being blessed by the gift of community. Come for all or part of the day. Your unique presence is cherished!

Logistics: We will be gathering at First Church in Cambridge, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Breakfast, lunch, ride sharing, and childcare will be provided. Wearing comfortable clothing, bringing a water bottle, and something to write in are encouraged! It’s a retreat after all! Questions?  Contact Lexi Boudreaux, lexi@firstchurchcambridge.org.
