Lenten Study Groups

“Restored: Finding Redemption in Our Mess” 
Wednesdays, 6:30 p.m., beginning February 21, Room 422
“Sometimes our lives are in such disarray we can’t envision a way through to redemption. But when we look at the mess through the eyes of Christ, we not only find redemption, we can clearly see spiritual restoration.” In “Restored”, author Tom Berlin encourages us to reflect and meditate through our own brokenness, showing us that it is only when we focus on the cross as a place to surrender control that we can leave our mess and find true redemption. Facilitated by Don Pollard. Books available online or contact the church office to have a book ordered for a $10 donation.

Resisting Racism
Wednesdays, 6:30 p.m., beginning February 21, Library
This study will be based on one developed by the UMC General Commission on Religion and Race: “To resist racism we must learn new information (knowledge/mindset), engage our willingness to make change (will/heartset), and do the tangible work of disrupting and dismantling racism (action/skillset).” For information and to RSVP, contact Carol Allums.
