WEEKLY LENTEN LUNCH SERIES: Life Transformed - The Way of Love in Lent
Every Thursday starting February 27th
11:30 am to 12:30 pm
The journey through Lent into Easter is a journey with Jesus. We are baptized into his life, self-giving, and death; then, we rise in hope to life transformed. This Lent, you are invited to walk with Jesus and into the experience of a transformed life. Together, we will reflect anew on the loving actions of God as recounted in the Easter Vigil readings from the depths of salvation history to the fullness of redemption. Each Thursday we will send out links to help prepare you for the next week's discussion.
We will begin each gathering with communion and lunch. A suggested donation of $5 is appreciated.
Please RSVP to email@example.com.

"After her conversion from Orthodox Judaism to Christianity, Lauren Winner found that her life was indelibly marked by the rich traditions and spiritual practices of Judaism. She set out to discover how she could incorporate some of these practices into her new faith. Winner presents eleven Jewish spiritual practices that can transform the way Christians view the world and God."
LENT FOR KIDS
at home activity
Help your kids engage in their own Lenten practice this year! Follow along each day with suggested activities that reflect the seven Ways of Love. After you complete each activity, cut it off of the page and begin connecting each strip together as the days go by into a Lenten Chain! This is a wonderful way for families to discuss important practices of prayer, worship and living out our faith in our every day lives. You can print your own copy at the link below. We will also have copies available in the Narthex.
HOT CHOCOLATE HOUR
Sunday, March15th at 9:45am
Participating in a spiritual practice is just as important for kids as it is for adults. During our time together, we will discover some new ways to live our faith as a young person. And, we will work on a special art project for our new youth room!
Don't forget to invite a friend to any of our Lenten events. Everyone is welcome!
