Adult Forum Lenten Series:  Bowing One’s Heart

Five-part series, each Sunday February 18 - March 18
11:30 am–12:15 pm in Kiep Lounge

This five-part themed arc explores a new way to think about Lent and the spiritual practice of fasting, not as a denial of sustenance but as a true humbling of the heart. This Adult Forum series continues throughout the season of Lent. Each week, discussions will be partnered with guest speakers from the community to share thoughts, knowledge, and reflections about work, community building, and mission from a Christian perspective. The theme of this series ties in with the One Great Hour of Sharing giving calendars, distributed to adults in worship and to children in Sunday School, and is based on Isaiah 58.  Each week stands alone; come for one, some, or all of the discussions.

February 18 - The Refugee Question:  Jill Segulin, Refugee Assistance Partners
February 25 - Building Bridges:  Elder Skip Winter, Union County Interfaith Coordinating Council
March 4 - Making a Home:  Geleen Donovan, Family Promise Union County
March 11 - Feeding Our People:  Bernadette Murphy, St. Joseph’s Social Services

You are loved beyond imagination! 
Valentine's Day 2018 is indeed Ash Wednesday this year.  
So, share a kiss, give some chocolates, enjoy the company of a loved one,
but ALWAYS know that God loves us beyond any measure!  
Come, be filled to overflowing with the love of Christ,
and share this love abundantly with the world.
