"Lenten bible study"
Join us for Lenten studies on Wednesday evenings
February 22 through 29 March at 6:30 pm
Lent is a time to reflect on our relationship to Jesus in preparation for his resurrection at Easter. This lent we will read those lessons that the Episcopal church chose for this season. The readings from the Gospel mostly come from Matthew, but some of John's gospel is read as well. We will read these lessons and the psalms and other books from the bible and discuss what we "hear" or feel or notice about them. Then on the following Sunday we get to hear the sermon that Fr. Reid shares often reflecting some thoughts that were shared during our group study. The study of God's word is a worthwhile lenten discipline that many don't get to make time for. We hope you'll come join us for this worthwhile endeavor.
Come for soup and bread at 6 pm - class follows at 6:30: We look forward to seeing you there!
