"Engaging Faith" During Lent & Easter

    02.13.20 | Education by Rob Courtney

    The Lent and Easter seasons offer a wonderful opportunity for faith exploration and reconnection to our relationship with God. On Wednesday evenings beginning Ash Wednesday (Feb. 26), we invite you to a series of sessions that we’re calling “Engaging Faith,” designed to equip you with insights and practices for your personal spiritual development. Each session will help you reflect more deeply on your relationship with God through community building, peer learning, and table discussions. Whether you’re new to the faith, or have been a part of the church your whole life, this is chance for you to take a step forward along your journey with Christ.

    If you are interested in baptism, confirmation, or reception into the church, or maybe even a formal reaffirmation of your baptismal vows during the Easter season, these sessions will meet the preparatory requirements. 

    Each session begins at 6:00 PM with dinner and discussion around the table. At 6:30 there will be 30 minute talk by one of our lay leaders (and sometimes the clergy), followed by 30 minutes of discussion and Q&A. We'll end promptly at 7:30 PM. There is childcare available beginning at 6:00 PM. Also, you might decide to start the evening with Holy Eucharist in the chapel at 5:30 PM.
