Lenten Devotional Series

 

DCC’s 2016 Lenten series is focusing on the Spirit through Jack Levison’s book 40 Days with the Holy Spirit: Fresh Air for Every Day, with a study guide by Pastor Carol.

February 14 is the first day Sunday small groups will gather from 10:15 to 11:00 a.m. to share about the Holy Spirit.  Also, a weekday group meets Thursdays from 10:00 to 10:45 a.m.  If you would like to participate in a group but haven’t yet signed up, please contact Judy Bush (463-7683 or jbush@metrocast.net).

In the Great Room after worship, a few remaining books and study guides are available.  To get a book and guide, simply fill out the pink form provided, designating whether you’d like to be part of a small group or do individual study.  The books are provided at no charge due to the Lilly Foundation grant.  Note: Day One of the book coincided with February 10.

Sunday small groups focusing on the Holy Spirit during Lent are: Scripture Seekers (sanctuary), Families of Faith (upstairs from sanctuary foyer), Aging with Grace (parlor), and a newly formed group (youth room upstairs in Parish Hall).

 

PRAYER PARTNERS

Would you like to have a prayer partner during Lent?  If you are in a small group, prayer partners can be arranged during the first session.  Otherwise, please contact Judy Bush.
