Lenten Study          Library
Facilitated by Michael Kennedy

Lent is a unique time in the church year; a time of remembering Jesus going to Jerusalem and being tried and crucified. Usually, I just want to get through it; get to Easter and the new life that it represents—from Jesus the baby at Christmas to Christ the resurrected savior at Easter.

But if we go through Lent too fast, we have neglected an opportunity for a new understanding of Jesus and his ministry. If we rush to Easter, because we know how the story ends (it is not a surprise Easter morning!), we might miss the reason for the joy of Easter. We need to prepare for that day.

Our Lenten preparation this year will consist of three readings each Sunday: Old Testament, Epistle, and Gospel. We will consider why these three readings were chosen and what they can tell us about the journey of Jesus to Jerusalem. Jesus calls us to journey with him! Come!

Bring your Bibles; pew Bibles available.

 
Coloring Lent: A Journey to Resurrection       History Room 
Facilitated by Liz Dowdy
We will use a series of coloring experiences to prepare ourselves for the glory of the Resurrection and to deepen our understanding of how history led to that point. All materials are provided but you may order the full book if you wish from Chalice Press. This class is appropriate for older youth, but not children.

Children & Youth Classes Continue on the 3rd floor at FCC Eugene
