In the Bible, the wilderness is a place where the ancient Israelites wandered for forty years, a place where prophets went to be purified, a place from which John the Baptist emerges and where Jesus is tempted and tested.
In this Lenten series, we will contemplate the various ways that wilderness is understood in our Holy Scriptures, as we also address the experience of wilderness is in our lives. As we see how God fed and sustained the Israelites in the wilderness, we will look for moments where we have been fed and sustained by God.
So please join us, the members of Grace Church and St. Ann & the Holy Trinity. All sessions will be held at St. Ann & the Holy Trinity and will include Bible Study, reflection, conversation and prayer.

To mark the first anniversary of a most successful outreach program, the entire congregation is invited to participate in the biggest Sandwich Sundays operation yet on the First Sunday of Lent, following the 11:15 am service. All those in church that day can join an assembly line of sandwich makers right in the church at a table that stretches across the chancel, with the altar of communion at the center.The many sandwiches we make will be delivered, as usual, to the guests of The Gathering Place, a drop-in center run by CAMBA that serves the homeless and working poor.

Join us for a talk by artist Andrea Geller about her oil paintings on view in our sanctuary throughout Lent. This exhibition titled Water and Land is part of a new and exciting initiative at our church called The Forum @ St. Ann’s, which encourages cultural programming for and with the larger community in Brooklyn and beyond. Her works are particularly relevant during the Lenten season as we reflect on Christ’s wilderness experience and its meaning our own lives. Join us for this talk and the reception that follows.
