Sonshine Class Lenten Study

Anyone interested in a Sunday morning Lenten Study is invited to the Sonshine Class. We are about to begin Divine Friendship: Reflections for Lent. The books are $10 and will be available on Sunday, Feb. 23.

Through this book of Scripture readings and a brief meditation for each day of Lent, Jesus invites us to spend time with him and to renew our friendship with him. This encouraging book reminds us that we are beloved children of a God who deeply desires friendship with us.

The Sonshine class meets in the room labeled Parlor. Visitors and new members are always welcome.

World Day of Prayer March 6

United Methodist Women will join women all around the world to pray for the world and to share a short Bible study written by women of Zimbabwe (this year’s country focus). We will meet at 11 a.m. for the study and for prayer, followed by a light lunch, which will include an example or two of Zimbabwean food. All women are invited.

The program is based on Jesus’ encounter with a man on a mat who wanted to be healed. (John 5:2-9) Our Christian sisters in Zimbabwe have written the Bible study and are using it as a call to action for peace and reconciliation. “We should not be afraid to act on the word of God,” the study’s writers say. “Let us give a healing hand to the needy, let us embrace children with love as their future is ahead, and let us open our arms in joy as the time to rise up has come.”

Lent Begins with Ash Wed., Feb. 26

The Lenten Season, 40 days of rethinking our relationship to Christ, and renewing our commitment to God, begins with a special service.
Take a few minutes to review its meaning by watching the very short video below. Then decide how you might observe this special season.   The Sonshine Sunday School class will be doing a Lenten study: 10 a.m., all welcome.  The Pastor’s Bible study is another opportunity.  Or you can receive devotional emails for The Upper Room and other sources.
