Below are some opportunities to enhance your spiritual life:
Lenten Bible Studies
“Entering the Passion of Jesus” by Amy-Jill Levine
Begins March 1st through April 8th
Dive deep into the history of the last days before the crucifixion. Jesus’ final days were full of risk. Every move he made was filled with anticipation, danger, and the potential for great loss or great reward. Jesus risked his reputation when he entered Jerusalem in a victory parade. He risked his life when he dared to teach in the Temple. His followers risked everything when they left behind their homes, or anointed him with costly perfume. We take risks as we read and re-read these stories, finding new meanings and new challenges.
Join us as we seek to better understand the final moments of Jesus’ earthly life at any one of our Bible studies throughout Lent. There are four different days and times to choose from for this six-week study. We hope you’ll join us!
- Sunday 9:30 am with Jenn & Brian Linton (March 1 to April 5)
- Tuesday 10:30 am with Betty Smith (March 3 to April 7)
- Tuesdays 6:30 pm with Betty Smith (March 3 to April 7)
- Wednesday 1:00 pm with Pastor Rebecca (March 4 to April 8)
Tuesdays, 10:30 am & 6:30 pm
(This Study will be taking a break during the season of Lent)
A 4-week study will start Tuesday, February 4th, 10:30 am and 6:30 pm. It will be a Small Group Study Connecting Christ and Culture, based on “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee, led by Betty Smith.
“Discover your world, God’s world, and the world of Atticus Finch. Pastor and author Matt Rawle is on a mission. He sees Christ all around him-in books, movies, TV shows, rock music-and he wants to share what he sees. As Matt says, “God offers the raw ingredients, and ‘culture’ is whatever we cook up.”
In “The Faith of a Mockingbird,” based on Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, pastor and author Matt Rawle uses Lee’s beloved characters to explore Christian faith, theology, and ethics. Join Scout, Atticus Finch, Boo Radley, and Tom Robinson in this four-week study considering God’s world and what it all means.
Wednesdays, 12:00 pm noon, Prayer Group
With all the growth and activity in our church and having learned about developing a life of prayer, our church has embarked on a journey in praying together. Pastor Rebecca leads a prayer meeting in the Chapel every Wednesday at noon. Scripture and a prayer outline are provided for us to pray together for our church, its people, and other concerns brought to us. This meeting generally lasts between 30-40 minutes, and you can add people/situations/prayers of your own. There is a deep sense of “joy” in coming together with fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, praying to God for our church and one another.
Fourth Wednesday of the month, 5:30 pm
This service group meets the fourth Wednesday of every month at the Village at Cataument, a shelter for homeless families. Members of the church come up with a menu, cook and serve supper to 20-30 people at 5:45 pm at the shelter. Contact Henry Brown at 508-540-0753 for more information.
