Thursday Thoughts

1. Sunday Worship - For the season of Lent our preaching focus will be on the Parables of Jesus. This weekend we will explore the idea of "Kaleidoscope" from the Parable of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10:25-37We will also celebrate the sacrament of communion.

Bring a friend and come experience God as we turn all that we are over to the One that loved us first!

2. Lenten Studies - As the season of Lent falls upon us we are offering several opportunities for you to observe and practice our Lenten disciplines. In addition to the preaching series each week several classes will be utilizing the Parables of Jesus as their focus in small groups. You can participate in those studies on Sunday mornings at 11am with Mike Hanna and on Wednesday evenings with Pastor Daryl in the Sanctuary and with Nancy Perkins in the Library and with the Young Adult class in room 103. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to participate in this Lenten study as we seek to draw ourselves closer to Christ.

3. #picturelent - As we journey in the season of Lent, another way you can prepare your heart and mind is with the daily devotional program entitled "#PictureLent" from our Conference's Life Enrichment Center. You can click here to sign up and receive them each day by email. There are also links there for other ways you can participate in this season of spiritual preparation on social media like Facebook and Instagram.
