Lent 2018: Journey with Jesus


Lent is an important time of reflection, in which we as Christians consider Christ’s sufferings and rethink how we are called to take up our own crosses. Some of us give up things like chocolate or Facebook or Netflix as a sort of fasting and others try to integrate something new into their lives, like mission work, exercising and praying. It’s a good season to take a “Journey with Jesus” and rethink how we live and to let some things go, or may even develop some new holy habits.

In that spirit, we encourage you to consider attending a Lenten Small Group. Choose one in the area where you live to have fellowship and learn together, using the study:

“The Ridiculous Journey: Following A Nobody From Nowhere”

Check out one of several options in the image above, under “Connect & Reflect,” and then RSVP to the Church Office, 770-497-0233.

We also invite you to become involved in the life of the congregation during the Lenten season by checking out the opportunities listed above in the image, under “Fellowship & Serve.” 

Maybe you’re already participating in Chancel Choir, so consider also serving dinner at Clifton Sanctuary Ministries as a way of putting sung beliefs into action. Or if you’re feeling the need to develop more meaningful relationships, the Men’s Breakfast or the Book Club would be the perfect fit. There’s so many ways to develop meaningful faith experiences as we go on a journey with Jesus.

Third Thursday Theology, 11/16

Third Thursday Theology meets on November 16th, continuing our study of “Called by God, Serving by Faith,” Small Fellowship Hall, 10-11:30 am. We are taking a deeper look at Hebrews 11 , and the heroes of faith.

Come and join us as we examine the challenges they faced as they responded to God’s call, how their response to those challenges defined their relationship with God…and how they can serve as an example to us as we try to lead our lives in faith.
