WONDROUS ENCOUTERS

God is knowable. As followers of Jesus we are invited not just to understand God, but to experience God. This Lent, as we take the 40-day journey to Easter, we would like to spend less time trying to explain God and more time learning to encounter God through scripture. We would love to journey together with you as we explore the God of the universe who has mysteriously chosen to be available to us, his children—to be present to us in our joy and grief, in our success and failure, in our death and resurrection.

Lent begins Ash Wednesday, March 1, and we will have the opportunity to strengthen our spiritual disciplines by joining the entire church in Richard Rohr’s study Wondrous Encounters. Our prayer is that we will immerse ourselves in this study either at home through daily readings and prayers, in Sunday School classes or small groups, Lenten Lunches, and devotion/prayer time.

  • Sunday School Classes
  • 11 a.m. Encounter* (no registration required) in the Fellowship Hall
