Lenten practices often focus on sacrificing a bit of life’s pleasures without considering how Jesus’ death was and is a miraculous act of love in and of itself. Our 3-week study will explore how and why the crucifixion and death of Jesus provides a model of selfless love and what it means to triumph over death. Class will meet Mar. 31 through Apr. 14. at 9:30 am in South Hall. Tom Zych will lead class. Adult Ed along with Justice and Mission will also lead a group discussion on April 28 at 9:30am about experiences of Lent.

If you’d like to join a small group, watch for the bulletin board with a map of group locations and more details. Small groups will start after Easter, occur at various times during the week, and provide an opportunity to grow in faith with fellow members and friends. Watch for details in early April and contact Lisa Koops with any questions.
Each Sunday a different lay person leads the Call to Worship and reads the scripture lessons. If you’ve wondered whether you can be a Lay Reader, contact Linda Martin to let her know of your interest. Whether you’ve been a Lay Reader and wish to continue or want to try it for the first time, she can answer your questions and go over the readings with you until you feel comfortable reading in front of the congregation.
