Lenten Group sign ups are OPEN; groups start February 21 week

For Lent 2021, we’ll be reading The Good and Beautiful Community by James Bryan Smith, a professor and Methodist pastor who has a heart for the church and spiritual formation.

The guiding questions Smith asks are: 1) how do we become more authentic Christ-followers, and 2) how do we become a beloved and vital community for others, no matter our differences? This book graciously and inspirationally speaks to our times and is rooted in scripture. With the focus unequivocally on Christ, Smith compels readers toward a renewed understanding of God, transformation and healing. There’s no political finger-wagging here. What you will find is a rich guide on how we can love courageously, surrender what doesn’t serve Christ or ourselves, and rediscover joy in community.
When It Starts
Sign ups begin the morning of Friday, Feb. 5. We invite all current small groups to consider reading The Good and Beautiful Community during our six-week church-wide study, beginning the first week of Lent (after Ash Wednesday, Feb. 17). Book groups start on Sunday, Feb. 21st and run through Easter.
