Lenten Small Group Study Opportunities!

The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ are at the heart of the Christian faith, and Good Friday and Easter are two of the most significant celebrations of the Christian year. “Lent,” 40 days before Easter, is a special season for Christians to take time to reflect, to check ourselves, to make our hearts ready and to focus on the cross, so that we might prepare and fully celebrate Christ’s resurrection and  the celebration of Easter. This Lent many of our small groups will be continuing with the Brian McLaren book, “We Make the Road by Walking.” Also being offered, is the John Ortberg study, “Who is this Man?” and Adam Hamilton’s “24 Hours that Changed the World.” Check out the list below of small groups using one of these Lenten studies:
