Lenten Study Series
The Lenten Season begins on Wednesday, March 1st. We will have a special Ash Wednesday service on this day at 7 pm in the fireplace room at the back of the sanctuary. Along with the service is the opportunity to have ashes put on your forehead or the back of your hand. The ashes are created by burning the palm branches that we used on Palm Sunday of previous years.
Lenten Study and Devotional “No Wonder They Call Him the Savior”, by Max Lucado. This is a wonderfully written book about Jesus and his last days on earth. It is an inspiration to read and is composed into short, thought provoking chapters. This book will serve as our Lenten study book and also our Lenten Devotional. Books are on order and will be available in mid-February. Cost will be $6. If the cost is prohibitive to anyone, we will facilitate getting each family a book. The schedule of reading and Lenten studies will be included with the books. Lenten studies will be held twice each week during Lent, once on Sunday morning in adult Sunday School from 10 to 10:45 am., and on each Monday evening from 7 to 8:15 pm. The church family is welcome to choose either set of sessions, or switch back and forth as your schedule allows. If you are not able to come to the studies, you will still enjoy and benefit from reading and reflecting on your own.

“We Are Baptists” Curriculum
Both in Children's Church and in the adult Sunday School class, we are examining what makes our lives and church family unique and uniquely great this winter and spring. Using the American Baptist Churches Curriculum, “We are Baptists”, we look each week at issues such as worship, separation of church and state, baptism, and many more Baptist distinctions. You are welcome to join in the process of learning and discussing in the class that fits with your age! See Pastor Karen if you would like a schedule of the subjects, or if you have questions. The adult class will take a break from this curriculum during lent.
