2019 SEASON OF LENT

Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return.

WEDNESDAYS IN LENT

We hear those words on Ash Wednesday and they remind us of our mortality and that who we are is grounded in God not ourselves. In our lives, we strive to know this same God deeper and more fully. Lent is an opportunity to turn back our thoughts, hearts, and actions; connecting again to our God of love. Practicing the 6 marks of discipleship helps us to ponder the mystery of faith and how we can work to live it out in this world and with one another.

SUNDAYS OF LENT

Have you ever asked yourself: How should I pray? How am I supposed to find time to serve? I don’t know how to read the Bible. Looking at my budget, how am I supposed to give?
Each Sunday in Lent, the 9:30 Adult education class will take a look at the theme for the week. Come explore in depth how we can live these marks of discipleship. Get some strategies for reading the Bible. Learn different ways to pray. Think about worship, serving and community in new ways. You are invited to stretch and grow your faith this Lent!

EVERYDAY OF LENT

During Lent, there is also an opportunity to practice these marks everyday. You are welcome to pick up a bookmark at the narthex ministry signs (next to the narthex ramp & stairs) with a reading for reflection and prayer, as well as a few hints for how to approach reading the Bible daily. Everyday in Lent there is a different reading and by the end of Lent you will have read through the entire books of John and Ephesians. A great start to practicing these marks of discipleship!
