Week IIMarch 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.

For more information on the series, please contact Pastor Lynn Rubier-Capron at 973-239-3561
