Communion offering will support "One Great Hour of Sharing"


On March 1, the One Great Hour of Sharing Communion offering will make the love of Christ real for individuals and communities around the world who suffer the effects of disaster, conflict, or severe economic hardship, and for those who serve them through gifts of money and time. Today, projects are underway in more than 100 countries, including the United States and Canada. Please plan to leave an offering at the Communion rail so that the One Great Hour of Sharing funds can make disaster relief, refugee assistance, development, aid, and more possible.


Passing It On: Spiritual formation in the home

Beginning Sunday, February 22, and continuing through March 15, a special Sunday school class for parents of children and youth will be offered in Outreach Center room 5.  The classes will be led by Kara Oliver. Each week there will be a simple liturgy, or process, for leading discussion with your family about where you saw and experienced God, as well as learning about the spiritual practice for the coming week. You are encouraged to join with other parents in a Sunday school class to talk about the joys and challenges of parenting and bravely choosing to embark on this journey of spiritual formation. A booklet to use at home will be available for $3.

New Lenten study, "The God We Can Know"

On Wednesday nights at WNAB during Lent, Michael Stephens will lead a 7-week DVD-based Lenten study from The Upper Room called The God We Can Know: Exploring the “I Am” Sayings of Jesus. It is the full series that Rob Fuquay debuted at Belmont’s all-church retreat.

Each week we will read from the Gospel of John and The God We Can Know. The Wednesday sessions will begin with 10-minute lessons filmed on location in the Holy Land that allow us to see the places and contexts where Jesus disclosed his identity. The gospel comes to life as we move from the Judean wilderness to the Galilean hills and into the heart of Jerusalem in this fast-paced, interactive video journey. Join us for this study series as we learn more about the God we can know and as we seek to answer Jesus’ question to us, “Who do you say I am?”
