BIBLE STUDY YOUR WAY 
Sundays 9:30am – Marshall Parlor (1st Floor Education Building)

Matt’s Sunday School Class meets in the MARSHALL PARLOR at 9:30! 
The season of Lent culminates in Holy Week, the six days leading up to Easter morning. During this week, we hear the fullness of Christ’s passion, his death, and resurrection. From Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem and on to the Triduum (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday), all of Holy Week focuses on the passion. Since most of us don’t have the time to gather to worship every day, this Lent we will examine one of these days each Sunday leading up to Easter starting March 6th with the story of Jesus eating in Lazarus’ home and Mary anointing Jesus’ feet. Join us Sundays in the Marshall Parlor at 9:30am.  


KERYGMA – PASTOR’S CLASS 
Wednesday Mornings 10:30 to 11:45am in the Library  (1st Floor Education Building)
Wednesday Evenings 6:30-7:30 Marshall Parlor (1st Floor Education Building)

 Matt’s Wednesday classes meet at 10:30am and 6:30pm
The class is a roundtable discussion format and all are welcome. The idea is to learn new things, ask questions, and grow deeper in our understanding of ourselves, the world around us, and God. Matt’s Wednesday classes will start a new subject in March based on one of the courses he took in January. The rituals we regularly engage in, both in and out of worship, impact how we experience and understand our spirituality and faith. We’re going to spend the season of Lent thinking more critically about our rituals. In S. Brent Plate’s latest book, he writes, “To learn about religion, we have to come to our senses. Literally.” The idea of rituals and the physicality of faith are uncomfortable territories for mainline protestants, but not for many other traditions. Why is that? What can we learn from other tradition’s rituals? What do our rituals have to offer us if we just paid a little bit closer attention to what we’re doing? We’ll explore these questions and more! I hope you’ll join us.
