Lent is a season of prayer, fasting and self-examination, preparing for the celebration of the resurrection of the Lord at Easter. It is a period of 40 days — like the flood of Genesis, Moses’ sojourn at Mount Sinai, Elijah’s journey to Mount Horeb, Jonah’s call to Ninevah to repent, and Jesus’ time of testing in the wilderness. (Sundays in Lent are not counted in this reckoning of the time between Ash Wednesday and Easter, as every Lord’s Day is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus.

We are having a Lenten discussion for the book Five Loaves Two Fish and Twelve Volunteers.  It is available from Amazon as a paperback and as an e-book.  We plan to meet on three Thursday evenings from 7:00 to 8:00, on March 24, March 31, and April 7.  The book has three sections and we will go over one section at each meeting.  Please join us!

As we develop our plans for a monthly community dinner beginning in April, this study will help frame the “why” of food ministry through a model of connection, authenticity, and service. The book tells stories of churches sharing food ministry with people who need their services. Full of practical advice, it emphasizes that building relationships and offering radical welcome is more important than efficiency or order. To join the discussion, call or email Pastor Trina.
