SOUP AND SPIRIT
Our lives are so busy, sometimes we just need a break. We need at least one day in the middle of the week when we can stop for a few minutes. During Lent the church is offering Soup and Spirit as a way to give you that break. It is a night where you don’t need to make dinner. Come to church to enjoy a simple meal of soup, spend some time in reflection for a short lesson, while your children and youth engage in an enjoyable program. It is a great way to pause in the middle of a busy week. The lessons for Soup and Spirit this year will be based on the book Come with Me, by Wendy J. Miller. This book helps us reflect on our life in the church helps us grow closer to Christ. Join us every Wednesday in Lent, starting March 13 at 6:30.
In Lent we recognize our need for God's grace and focus our attention on strengthening our spiritual lives. An important part of this process is walking with Jesus through Holy Week. It is this journey that renews our spirits and deepens experience of Easter. Mark your calendar now for Holy Week so that you can attend the services. You will be blessed.
