Beginning Wednesday, February 17: Lenten Book Series
Each year for Lent, we pause our weekly Bible study to be replaced with a Lenten Book Series. As this year’s Lenten theme is the ecologically minded “Passion of Earth,” Rev. Murphy will be leading a series on Pope Francis’ “Laudato Si”, which focuses on care for our common home. It is free online and can be found by clicking the button below.

The group begins on Wednesday, February 17 at 5:30 pm and continues through Wednesday, March 31. Those attending should plan on reading the intro’s first 14 pages by February 17.
