Upcoming Events

Evening Lenten Series: Help, Thanks, Wow – The Three Essential Prayers

Wednesdays: February 25, March 4 and March 11

7:00 to 8:30 pm

Join The Rev. Mark Stanley on three Wednesday Evenings in Lent (February 25, March 4 and March 11) from 7:00 to 8:30pm for an exploration of Anne Lamott’s book Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers. This series is for inquirers who don’t know much about the spiritual life as well as for those who would like to go deeper. Reading Anne Lamott’s book is recommended but certainly not required for participation.

Baltimore Museum of Art Tour

After Church on Sunday, March 8

Please join us for a BMA tour led by our very own OSP members,  Melanie Harwood and Scott Burkholder.   Melanie is the Museum’s head registrar and a veteran of the institution and Scott works closely with the BMA director.   The tour will start at the BMA at 12:15 and last approximately 60 minutes with a focus on the recently re-opened American wing which is spectacular!  Also, there is an optional lunch for anyone who is interested at Gertrude’s after the tour.  The tour is free, you pay for your own lunch.  To keep the tour group size optimal we are limiting it to 15 people.  So, please be one of the first 15 to respond via email to Carol Sholes carolsholes@verizon.net.
