LENT SMALL GROUPS

Lent begins February 22, 2023

Lent is often a season where we enter into new endeavors or deepen faith practices.

Throughout Lent, our congregation will explore the Parables of Jesus and these small groups will make their way through Parables and Passion: Jesus’ Stories for the Days of Lent by John Indermark. Books cost $10 and can be picked up at the church.

Check out one of the many small group opportunities below, or if you are already in a small group, consider journeying along with the congregation by using the same book!

If you don’t see something that works for you and would like to facilitate a group, please reach out to John Magnuson, or feel free to read along on your own, knowing that you aren’t journeying alone.
