Lenten Growth Groups are forming now! Join a group to connect with others from the congregation. We'll also be reading Lent in Plain Sight by Jill Duffield who is a PC(USA) pastor who recently served as the editor of The Presbyterian Outlook magazine. This daily devotional for Lent is not a difficult read.
In her devotional, Duffield draws attention to ten ordinary objects that Jesus would have encountered on his way to Jerusalem: dust, bread, the cross, coins, shoes, oil, coats, towels, thorns, and stones. In each object, we will find meaning in the biblical account of Jesus’ final days as we encounter a new object through Scripture, prayer, and reflection during the weeks of Lent. Lent in Plain Sight reminds us to open ourselves to the kingdom of God in the midst of the ordinary.
The book is available in a wide variety of online bookstores, and there is a Kindle version. You may also contact the church if you would like to order a copy. (The cost is around $10.)
Growth Groups will meet for 7 weeks beginning the week of February 21. All groups will meet by Zoom. Registration is now open so scroll down to sign up today. Please sign up for one of the groups and plan to share in the journey with them each week on the given day and time. (For example, the Tuesday study will begin on February 23 and continue each week through April 6.)
We hope you will make participating in a Growth Group part of your Lenten journey.
