  • Build a foundation of unconditional love for your child

Discover your child’s primary language–then speak it–and you will be well on your way to a stronger relationship with your flourishing child.

Lenten Studies

Gospel of John
John: The Gospel of Light and Life

Dates:              March 6 to April 10 (Mondays)
Time:               5:00 p.m.
Location:         Wesley Room (Celebration Center – Pope Avenue)
Leaders:          Dick Phillips and Steve Alm

The Gospel of John is the most deeply spiritual of the four gospels. This writing is filled with rich images and profound truths, but John notes that his aim in writing the gospel is that readers will not only believe in Jesus Christ, but that they “may have life in his name.” In this six-week, DVD-series, John: The Gospel of Light and Life (by Adam Hamilton), you’ll follow the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus through the Gospel of John and understand the context of some of the best-known verses in the New Testament.

A limited number of books have been ordered for this study.  Call or email Connie at the church office to sign up and reserve a copy of the book ($12.00).  You can also obtain their own copy of the book (hard copy or electronically) through your favorite bookseller (Barnes & Noble, Amazon, or Cokesbury). Participants are asked to read the introduction and chapter 1 prior to the first study session.

Women’s Lenten Study
Women of Easter

Dates:              March 2 to April 6 (Thursdays)
Time:               11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Location:         Wesley Room (Celebration Center – Pope Avenue)
Leaders:          Pam Denlinger and Kathy Stricker

We’ll meet three women named Mary, each of whom has a life-changing encounter with Jesus. Mary of Bethany prepares the way for the Lord s burial when she anoints His feet and fills the air with her perfume. His mother, Mary of Nazareth, remains by His side from His first breath to His last, her loyalty unwavering. Mary Magdalene, delivered of seven demons, bravely supports her Teacher through His darkest hours, then proclaims the glorious news of His resurrection.  Reading then discussing The Women of Easter by Liz Curtis Higgs, your mind and emotions will be engaged and your faith strengthened as each scene unfolds, preparing your heart for a richer, deeper Easter experience.

A limited number of books have been ordered for this study.  Call or email Connie at the church office to sign up and reserve a copy of the book ($10.00).  You can also obtain their own copy of the book (hard copy or electronically) through your favorite bookseller (Barnes & Noble, Amazon, or Cokesbury).
