Lent Begins with Ash Wednesday, Feb. 14

Lent, a season when we especially think about  God’s love for us, begins on Valentine’s Day, with a 6 p.m. service.  A variety of services, studies, and times of personal devotion can help make this a rich spiritual time.   If you  have ever wondered what Christians believe, and why, come join us.  We’ll learn more about God’s love and who Jesus is together.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Speaking of learning, it’s not too late to join the two study groups who are reading and discussing the book Faith-Sharing.   Two groups meet on Wednesdays to study together: at 11 a.m. and at 6 p.m.  The book costs $10.  The groups were on Chapter 3,  The Nature of Faith, on Feb. 7.  We  discuss what faith is–and is not.  We consider ideas such as: “The object of Christian faith is not a philosophy of life about which we may speculate….the object of Christian faith is the living God revealed in one Jesus of Nazareth, whom we call the Christ.”  And we check our ideas against what the Bible says.
