Tables of 8 Groups break out into classrooms to share in Bible Study on the Lent Season Theme — Risking Generosity! This Bible Study will be incorporating materials from 40ACTS.
Visit http://www.40acts.org.uk/about/ to find out more and to sign up for daily devotions and other useful resources. If people know anything about Lent, they think it is a time of giving up something for what they believe, or to follow what the church says they should do. Indeed, Lent is the time of year when the church marks Jesus’ journey to the cross where he was willing to give himself up as a sacrifice. What Jesus did was the ultimate gift of generosity. What if we used this time to invite people to give their lives in acts of generosity which reflect Jesus’ love and commitment?
In small groups we will look to signs of Jesus in the gospel of John for a series on different gifts of generosity we can offer. What will we grow in the world as we focus on this practice?
The abundant grace of God changes the course of our lives. We will see that in a broad way through the overview of God’s covenant relationship with people through the Old Testament lessons for Lent, and then in an individual way in Ephesians 2:1-10 (Lent 4). God’s grace lays a firm foundation for our community to risk and act in new and generous ways.
HOLDEN EVENING PRAYER: 7:30- 7:50 PM
All are encouraged to gather in the sanctuary for evening prayer (Holden) to settle our hearts in Christ for the night. A station for personal prayer for healing will be available.
Young children can play and be supervised by nursery caregivers downstairs.
