This year’s Lenten Study begins March 1 and ends April 5. We will be using the book, The Journey to Jerusalem, A story of Jesus’ last days, by John Pritchard, exploring the Gospel of Luke through the eyes of the disciple John. The Journey to Jerusalem follows Luke’s account from Luke 9:51, as Jesus ‘set his face to go to Jerusalem’. The book provides weekday readings for Lent, from Ash Wednesday to Good Friday, along with a poem for each Saturday. Questions for reflection and discussion are also included. Sign up to be a part of a Lenten Study small group by filling out a registration form. Registration forms are located in the Narthex and Fellowship Hall on Feb 2, 9 and 16. We hope you join us!
