The Rev. Esta Jarrett will preach for the Canton Community Lenten worship service to be held on Thursday, March 18, at 12:30 p.m.
The 30-minute service may be seen on Facebook at https:// Facebook/CantonFirstBaptistChurch. There will be no in-person service, because of COVID.
The Rev. Ms. Jarrett has been pastor of Canton Presbyterian Church since 2011. She was reared in Newport News, Virginia, before making her way to her family’s ancestral home in Western NC. She graduated from the University of Virginia with degrees in English and anthropology, and from Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond, Virginia, with degrees in divinity, Christian education, and theology and ethics.
She will be cheering for Virginia in the NCAA men’s tournament as usual, which has taught her both radical hope and humility through the years.
The Rev. Ms. Jarrett is proud to call Canton home.
