Sunday Adult Forum in Lent: “The Lenten Journey, Then and Now” During our Sunday Forum, we will consider the journey of Lent through the lens of the gospel in the Sunday lectionary. This year, we have some compelling themes that our clergy and lay leaders will engage through an interactive dialog that relates the ancient story to our current lives. Class meets 9:30-10:15 a .m. in the Parish Hall. Click here for details.
Children’s Chapel: Children assemble in the Keeper’s Cottage at 10:30 a.m. Sundays for Bible lessons and activities then proceed to the Church, where they will join their parents for communion.
Wednesday Evenings in Lent: “I will with God’s Help: Lent and the Baptismal Covenant” During our Wednesday Evening series, we will gather for a potluck meal at 6:00 p.m. followed by a discussion facilitated by our clergy, lay leaders, and talented friends of St. John’s. Together, we will explore the five questions that are central to our baptismal covenant and our identity as followers of Jesus. We will also learn more about the origins of Lent and Holy Week in the early church as a time of preparation for baptisms that took place at the Great Vigil of Easter. What does this preparation mean for us today? As we answer these questions, we will all become more prepared for our “first” Easter Vigil at St. Johns! Click here for details.
