The 2015 Lenten Bible Study will begin on Sunday, February 22nd, following our worship service and coffee hour. The study will be based on the book entitled The Lord Is Our Salvation, written by Katie Z. Dawson. Here is the way Cokesbury describes the study:
During the season of Lent, we prepare ourselves to experience Jesus’ death and resurrection at Easter. In The Lord Is Our Salvation, Katie Z. Dawson invites us to a deeper understanding of the salvation Christ offers by exploring the various ways God restores us and our world to wholeness. Through each week of Lent, Dawson opens the Scriptures to show God’s redemption at work in the men, women, and communities of the Bible. In her personal and deeply insightful reflections, you are called to see and embrace Christ’s salvation in your own life and in the world around you.
The Lord is Our Salvation is based on the Revised Common Lectionary scriptures for year B of the church year, a three-year cycle of Bible readings. The study includes commentary and reflection on readings from the Old Testament, the Gospels, and the Epistles, offering the opportunity to explore these Bible readings in a seven-session study.
Anyone is welcome to attend so if you are interested in coming, please contact Pam in the church office at 860-379-2157 to reserve your spot and order your book (approximately $8).
We’re looking forward to this time of study and relection, and we hope you’ll join us!
