Thursday Morning Lenten Bible Study & Prayer at Faith UMC at 10:00am
We offer a Thursday Morning Bible Study, and everyone is welcome. We meet at Faith UMC but folks the community and several different churches attend. Pastor Jason leads these Bible Studies. We are finishing up a Lenten Bible Study called After 40: Ready for Action about how the 40 Days of Lent, Jesus' 40 Days in the wilderness, Moses' 40 Days on Mt. Sinai, etc. are times that prepare us for action and ministry. Please join us for this study taught by Pastor Jason. Beginning April 12 we will return to our study of the traditional hymns of our faith, and the meaning, theology and life application that they share through music. This is a chance to deeply explore your faith—and how it impacts the rest of your life. We would love to have you join us. We meet in the first classroom in the Education Wing.
Final Sunday Night Lenten Bible Study on April 8 at Long Memorial UMC at 6:00PM -- Everyone is invited--children through adults

The Lenten Bible Study (produced by Hopewell UMC) After 40: Ready for Action is about how the 40 Days of Lent prepare us for action and ministry just like periods of 40 days/years prepared God's people in the Bible. This is a chance to deeply explore your faith—and how it impacts the rest of your life. We would love to have you join us.
