Three Lenten Small Group Offerings: All Are Invited!
Groups begin February 21st
During the contemplative and reflective season of Lent, we’re delighted to offer opportunities to grow in faith by being part of a virtual small group. Wherever you may be located, you’re welcome!
- Forgiveness: A Lenten Study
This group will meet Sundays at 11:15 am (2/21 – 3/28)
co-facilitated by Ron Yarger and Edit Ostrom
This small group will feature the book Forgiveness: a Lenten Study, by best-selling author Marjorie J. Thompson. “Using biblical examples and real-life situations, Thompson offers clarity, insight, and sensitivity. This book is a valuable resource for examining both our ability to forgive and our own need for forgiveness.” To join this group contact Ron Yarger at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the Zoom invitation. Books may be purchased at amazon.com and cokesbury.com.
- Words of Life: Jesus and the Promise of the Ten Commandments Today
This group will meet Mondays at noon (2/22 – 3/29), facilitated by Associate Pastor Sharon Yarger
This small group will feature the book- and video-based study Words of Life: Jesus and the Promise of the Ten Commandments Today by United Methodist pastor Rev. Adam Hamilton. He explores how “these ten ancient “words” were given to us by a loving God who longed to set safe boundaries, create order out of chaos, help communities live peacefully, and protect us—often from ourselves.” To join this group and receive the Zoom invitation, contact Pastor Sharon at email@example.com. Books (print, digital, and audio versions) may be purchased at amazon.com. or cokesbury.com
- Roll Down, Justice!
This group will meet Mondays at 7:30 pm on Zoom
(2/22 – 4/5) facilitated by Alyssa Keifer
You are invited to join Alyssa as we enter into this virtual brave space together and renew our commitment to being more Christ-Like, to care, to bring justice in God’s world. This Lenten Biblical Reflection, Roll Down, Justice!, written by Faye Wilson and featuring the music and reflections of Mark A. Miller, poses the following questions to believers: What are you prepared to give in order to have a closer walk with God? What can you give in order to embrace anew the work of justice?
No formal knowledge required, but you may want to have a Bible close by! If you wish to receive the Zoom link to attend, sign-up here. If you have any questions, please email Alyssa firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to journeying with you!
