Lenten Series 2017
When the Church Speaks
What does it mean and what can we do?
A Look at our Social Principles
Join us each week for dinner at 6 pm followed by an interactive program for adults and a service learning opportunity for children from 7 to 8:30 p.m., Wednesday evenings during Lent.
Participants will confirm, question, clarify, and expand on how they practice the United Methodist tradition in light of the Social Principles of the United Methodist Church.
Social Principles, while not to be considered church law, are a prayerful and thoughtful effort on the part of the General Conference to speak to the human issues in the contemporary world from a sound biblical and theological foundation as historically demonstrated in United Methodist traditions. They are intended to be instructive and persuasive in the best of the prophetic spirit.
The study series will feature opportunities for participants to be actively involved and engaged. Participants will enjoy responding to new insights and knowledge while practicing good dialogues with peers. Each session is designed to enhance participants’ desire for deeper learning leading to increased committed Christian action modeled after the life of Jesus.
Each week, children will be offered service learning activities related to our topic.
