It is hard to believe it, but the first day of Lent, Ash Wednesday, is February 10. As we have done in past years we are planning an all church Lenten study, asking everyone to commit to three things: 1. Pray every day. 2. Participate in a weekly small group during the 6 weeks of Lent. 3. Attend worship every Sunday during Lent. (I know Spring Break happens. Perhaps you can commit to worshiping at a church near you while you are on your spring break trip.) This year’s all church Lenten study will be guided by the study book, “Renegade Gospel: The Rebel Jesus”, written by Rev. Michael Slaughter, the pastor at Ginghamsburg United Methodist Church. There will be small groups available for adults throughout the week. The children and youth will follow the Lenten Study curriculum during Sunday school. Themes for Sunday worship services will correspond with the weekly study topics. In a very short time the days and times for adult small groups will be posted.
