The events of Christ’s Passion, which take place during the last week of Jesus’ life, often don’t receive enough time in our worship and study. These stories are important to our faith journey and our identity as followers of Jesus. And yet, we often move too quickly from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday with little time to take in the dramatic story of that last week.
During worship we will “freeze-frame” moments in Holy Week so we might put ourselves into the picture. How might taking a closer look at the ancient story open us to deeper conviction for our role in its ongoing message? Our worship will be inspired by material from Marcia McFee’s Worship Design Studio and Amy-Jill Levine’s book and study, “Entering the Passion of Jesus.”
The Bible Study will take place on Monday evenings from 6:30 – 8:00pm. The dates and topics are listed below. If you would like to have a study during the day, please speak to Pastor Beverly and we can explore that option.
March 2nd: Jerusalem: Risking Reputation
March 9th: The Temple: Risking Righteous Anger
March 16th: Teachings: Risking Challenge
March 23rd: The First Dinner: Risking Rejection
March 30th: The Last Supper: Risking the Loss of Friends
April 6th: Gethsemane: Risking Temptation
If you would like the office to order a study book for you, please let us know by February 9. Otherwise the book can be ordered through Cokesbury, Amazon, or likely your local book store.
