Lenten Bible Study Soup / Supper
Mar 31 @ 6:00 pm

Lenten Bible Study
Immersion Bible Study

“How do we find hope when we are in the midst of great loss?  Why does God allow suffering?  From the Assyrian conquest of Israel and the threat to Judah during Isaiah’s ministry to the Babylonian destruction of Jerusalem and the exile of its citizens during Jeremiah’s ministry, God’s covenant people have suffered great losses.  In Lamentations a poet shows us how to mourn loss, while the prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah express hope in God’s ongoing love, mercy, justice, and restoration, a hope we can claim for ourselves during our times of tragedy.”  (Immersion Bible Studies)
This year in our Lenten study, we will be studying the Old Testament for a deeper knowledge and understanding of God’s word to us as the faithful.  Through study of scripture, we will hear God’s message to us and then use that message on our faith journey.  Not only will we experience a deeper faith, but we will also use the words of the prophets to reach out to others and live our faith.
Our study will begin on Friday, February 24 and will continue each Friday evening through April 7.  A meal of soup, bread and fruit provided by the study participants will begin at 6 pm followed by the study at 7 pm.  The study ends at 8 pm as we share good wishes and go out to be God’s hands in the world.  This is an 8 week study and includes:
Prophecies of Judgment Against the Nations
Prophecies in Favor of Israel
Prophecies of Israel’s Deliverance
Prophecies of the Messiah
Jeremiah’s Call and His Warnings to Judah
Prophecies Against Other Nations
The Fall and Restoration of Jerusalem
Mourning for Jerusalem’s Holocaust
Join us for this opportunity to study God’s word and share our personal experiences from scripture.  Contact Diana Capron with any questions you may have about the study.  See you there.

The Eco Tip for March

Fresh lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and chard,
Grow your own vegetables in your backyard!
And if you want to do someone a favor,
Put in an extra plant for your neighbor!!

From the Parish Nurse

Dear Church Family,

March is “Save Your Eyesight” month.  We often take for granted our health when all is going well.  Then, something happens and we wish we had done things differently.  (more…)

Take Note

As we enter the Lenten season and journey through Palm Sunday to Easter, it is a great time to join the choir for a season of singing.  We have wonderful anthems planned for this reflective journey in musical styles from Baroque to contemporary, including a piece that will join the children’s choirs with the adult choir on Palm Sunday.
