LENT @ SRVUMC
What would it have been like to follow on the heels of Jesus in his ministry? We will journey with Jesus from Nazareth, his home town, to Capernaum, the Sea of Galiliee, Caesarea Phillippi, Jericho and finally to Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. Along the way we will ask ourselves questions about what it means to follow him in our lives today. So grab a walking stick and come with us on this sojourn of faith and discipleship through Lent.
And so, the journey begins…
Ash Wednesday Dinner & Worship Service, March 5, beginning at 6 p.m.
Join us for dinner in Wesley Center at 6:00 p.m., and for worship in the Sanctuary at 7:00 p.m., as we enter one of the holiest seasons of the year and begin our Lenten journey of “following on the heels of Jesus.” Over dinner, Ron and Kathi will offer a brief overview of the Gospel of Mark to help orient all Lenten small groups as we begin the journey of studying the Jesus who is portrayed in this Gospel. The worship service will include imposition of ashes and a special time for children, so that they too may understand this ancient tradition. We will conclude by 7:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome.
Church-wide Lenten Study, March 5-April 19
Lenten Small Groups Forming Now—Sign Up on Sundays in the Courtyard >>View Small Groups
You are invited to join the entire SRVUMC congregation in studying together the Gospel of Mark and using the text Mark for Everyone, by N.T. Wright, so that we might get a clearer picture of who Jesus was - this person that we are trying still, thousands of years later - to know and to follow. We have 15 small groups available to welcome new members for this season, at a variety of times and locations. Studies begin with a noverview of the Gospel over dinner on Ash Wednesday (March 5), will continue over five,weekly, small group meetings, concluding during Holy Week (April 13-19). Sign ups begin Feb. 23.
