FEELING LENT – DEFIANCE IN HALLS OF POWER

It has been very bizarre how all our lives have seemingly changed on a dime in just the last 10 days. We’ve gone from humming cheerfully Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there to pining the threat Like a good neighbor, stay over there!
There has been this undercurrent of fear gripping our world, nation and community. We don’t like not knowing the unknown. We don’t like losing control. And that’s where we are right now.

LENTEN LIFEGROUPS…


How619QcvBr3oL do we walk with Christ—daily follow him, grow in him, and faithfully serve him?   In the Gospels, Jesus modeled for us the Christian spiritual life. The apostles taught it in their writings. And the Church has, through the last 2,000 years, sought to pursue this Christian spiritual life.

In The Walk, Adam Hamilton focuses on five essential spiritual practices that are rooted in Jesus’ own walk with God and taught throughout the New Testament. Each of these practices is intended as part of our daily walk with Christ while also being an essential part of growing together in the church. Led by Bill Lalla, this LifeGroup will meet  Mondays, February 24-April 6 at 10:30 am or 6:30 pm.
