VERONA, NJ - The First Presbyterian Church of Verona, located at 10 Fairview Avenue is offering a Lenten Adult Education Series. This 5 week course entitled "What Does Lent Have to Do With Where I Spend Most of My Time" will meet Sunday mornings from 9:00-9:30 at the church. The series will focus on Tim Keller's book, "Ever Good Endeavor" and the biblical account of Jesus' life.
Class dates and lessons are:
Week I: Feb. 26 : We will explore the benefit of having a Lenten Practice in your busy life and provide you with one that can realistically live within your daily schedule
Week II: March 12 How has your life been better because you have practiced your faith? Two of our church members will tell their story and we will all have a chance to examine the benefits of our own life of faith using a Lenten practice called "the Daily Examine."
Week III: March 19 Lent is a time to "walk beside Jesus" on his journey to Jerusalem. During this class we will develop a practice that opens us up to the influence of Jesus' journey on our private, family, church and public lives.
Week IV: March 26 : We will hear from a church member about how their life is impacted by their practice of their faith
Week V: April 2: The final class will focus on the different meanings of communion. Even if you have been taking this sacrament for decades and if you memorized the shorter catechism when you were young, or if you are taking communion for the first time, there are powerful ways that our practice can speak to us all. As with the entire series, we will examine how the sacrament helps us live our daily life of faith in the very real world
Every lesson stands on its own, so it is not necessary to attend all, but everyone is welcome ANY time. Please note that there is no class on Sunday, March 5th.
