The Women’s Interact group is beginning a new study on April 5th called NOW THAT FAITH HAS COME: A Study of Galatians.
“Join Beth and Melissa Moore in Now That Faith Has Come for a six-week deep dive into Paul’s captivating letter to the Galatians. Come to know the letter’s original recipients. Study its original context and embrace its timeless relevance. Discover—or perhaps rediscover—what makes the gospel of Jesus Christ revolutionary to those who choose to believe. Find out how everything has changed, now that faith has come.”

The Season of Lent
For centuries Christians have observed the season of Lent; it is one of the earliest seasons observed by the Church. Lent is the 40-day period that begins with Ash Wednesday and serves as a way for us to make spiritual pilgrimage towards and through Good Friday so that, when we finally reach Easter Sunday, our celebration can be rich and heartfelt, and full of joy!
Lent is a season for rethinking how we live and for letting some things go or maybe even developing some new holy habits. It is a season for self-examination and penitence, for restoring right relationships with God and others, and for taking time to fast and pray like Jesus did.
We invite you to join us as we follow Jesus through this unique and significant season.
