Adult Formation Opportunities — Lent 2017

SUNDAY MORNINGS at 10:30

Final Words from the Cross is a seven-week book study with video components based on the book of the same title by Adam Hamilton. Journey with Jesus through Lent with this study. This class begins March 5 and will be led by Barbara Hooks. Sign up in the lobby to insure that we have a book ready for you. Cost for the book is $12.

MIDWEEK OPPORTUNITIES

FEELING AT HOME IN PRAYER: If prayer is the best way to connect with God, then why does it feel so hard? If you pray only when you have to (“Help, God, before it’s too late!”), if you struggle to know what to say, or you find it challenging to try to pray, then this class is for you! Utilizing the Companions in Christ resource, Deepening our Prayer, we will walk through six weeks of a guided experience of practicing prayer.

Daytime group will take place on Wednesdays, 11 am -12:30 pm in the Library, April 19-May 24, led by Pastor John Anderson

Evening group will take place on Monday nights from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Library, April 17 through June 5 (skipping May 8 and May 29), led by Robin Olschner

Please note for both the daytime and evening groups: You will need to pick up a book in the Church Lobby when you sign up and prepare the first week’s readings before the first class.  Cost for the book is $8.

JOURNEYING THROUGH GOD’S STORY: This group is working through the Narrative Lectionary, tracing the arc and unity of God’s story through weekly readings and discussion. Tuesdays at noon. Led by Robin Olschner.
