LENTEN BIBLE STUDY

Thursday morning (10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.) ~ February 18 and March 3, 10 & 17

The Letter to the Hebrews is an ancient church sermon (originally attributed to Paul) that was meant to spread faith and hope to a Christian community facing the difficult circumstances of living the Good News of the Gospel in the midst of great hardships. Many of us may find the circumstances of our daily lives give us cause to feel tired, stressed out, and living with the heavy weight of the world on our shoulders. During our Lenten Bible study, we will gather and explore the hope-filled words of The Letter to the Hebrews and translate its meaning to our lives today. We will study the thirteen chapters of the letter over the course of four meetings…please join us for all four dates, or just one, as your schedule allows. Please sign-up in the narthex.

LENTEN QUIET DAY

On Saturday, March 12 we will gather from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM for fellowship, refreshments, prayer, and a viewing and discussion of the short videos that are part of the “Sitting in the Dark: Growing through the Poetry of Pain” series from the Work of the People. The videos explore how in times of darkness in our lives when we go through pain, depression, grief, or fear we can experience these things as forms of suffering, but they can also be times of transformation and healing. Video presenters include Barbara Brown Taylor, Brene Brown, Glennon Melton Doyle, Jean Vanier, Walter Bruggemann, Parker Palmer, and Nish Weiseth. For more information or if you have questions please contact Karen Safstrom (karen.safstrom@gmail.com). A sign-up sheet can be found on the table in the narthex.
