Lent 2020 Opportunities

Wednesdays in Lent, 7:30-8:30 PM
CUMC Asbury Room and Online
Beginning Wednesday, March 4th
There are so many ways the God is present in the world. There is wisdom that explicitly comes from the Christian tradition, and other wisdom that Christians need to learn from and appropriate that is not explicit to a faithful worldview. Each Wednesday in Lent, we will gather for an experience of spiritual formation and discuss what we resonate with or want to explore more fully about various podcasts. We will also create a Facebook group for those who wish to share their insights and questions about the various podcasts.
Look for the link for each week's podcast in the ENews and our website beginning Thursday, February 27th.
For more information, please contact facilitator Jeff Markay at revjmarkay@earthlink.net

Wednesday, March 4, 2020 from 7:30-8:30pm in the Asbury Room and online

Podcast: How Gratitude Benefits Your Brain The Science of Happiness

Can you train your brain to be more grateful? Todd Zwillich of The Takeaway takes on the challenge.

We’re delighted to offer an opportunity to grow in faith during the season of Lent by deepening our relationships with God and one another in a Small Group. Groups will explore the DVD-based study The Walk: Five Essential Practices of the Christian Life by United Methodist Pastor Adam Hamilton. Each group will meet for six sessions of approximately one hour each. One group will meet Sundays at 10:15 am, and a second group will meet Mondays at noon. Signup sheets are on the bulletin board across from Pastor Jeff’s office and books are available for purchase for $15.00. Wherever you may be on your faith journey, you’re welcome to join fellow pilgrims for study, prayer, conversation, and community.

For further information contact Associate Pastor Sharon Yarger
at the church office or at scyarger@optonline.net.
