Lenten Small Groups

Lenten Small Groups.  Lent is a season for spiritual growth.  Through prayer, study, and sacrificial giving, we seek to deepen our faith as we move toward the joy of Easter.  As our Lenten study this year, we will explore Embracing the Uncertain, by United Methodist pastor and author Magrey DeVega.  Embracing the Uncertain invites readers to engage and wrestle with life’s uncertainties, not ignore them. The first six chapters focus on post-Transfiguration, pre-Passion stories in the Gospels. Each of these stories is a signpost in the gospel narrative, pointing down at a world of uncertainty and forward toward the cross and guiding us into a deeper relationship with, and obedience to, Jesus.  The books are available in the church office for an $8 donation.  Lenten small group options include:

  • Sundays, 9:45 a.m., beginning March 10, with the Ventures in Faith Sunday School class – Room 211 in the Church School Building.

  • Sundays, 9:45 a.m., beginning March 10, led by Don Pollard with the Glenn Next Community – Room 309/Parlor in the Church School Building.

  • Sundays, 6:15 p.m., beginning March 10, led by Emily Washburn & Susan-Anne MacKenna – We will meet at Saba in Emory Village.

  • Mondays, 11:30 a.m., beginning March 11, led by Rev. Susan Pinson. We will meet in the Darrell Bryant Room in the Youth & Activities Building.

  • Wednesdays, 6:30 p.m., beginning March 13, led by Rev. Mark Westmoreland. We will meet in room 422 in the Church School Building.
