Lenten Series: Faith Stories, Lenten Style

Adult Wednesday Night Program
Wednesday, March 29, 2017
6:30 p.m., Assembly Room

Our faith journeys are part of the larger church traditions around the world. We observe Lent at River Road as a part of the liturgy, but what does Lent look like for a personal spiritual journey? We will hear from Rev. Andrew Terry and his wife, Tiffany, who worship in the Episcopal tradition. They will share with us what Lent means for them each year, with a time for questions about what it could mean for us here in our tradition.

For five weeks after Ash Wednesday and before Holy Week, our Wednesday night dinner and program will be transformed into a learning & sharing time, two of which will be inter-generational. After dinner, we will remain at our tables in the Fellowship Hall where we will spend each week getting to know one another, getting to know about Lent, getting to know about spiritual practices as part of faith. Join us in giving up 45 minutes each week for Lent to study and grow, thus adding in a weekly spiritual practice. May God bless our 40 days together. Dinners will reflect our simplicity by providing vegetarian-friendly meals.

Make your dinner reservations here.
