Lenten Studies this year commence Wednesday 17th February.
Walking Humbly with God by Dr Timothy Gaden $10.00
Every Lent is an opportunity to examine anew our walk with God. We are invited each year in this season to walk with the Israelites on their journey from slavery to freedom, and to walk with Jesus in the last week of his earthly life. As we do this, Jesus walks with us, pointing out the road ahead and holding us when we stumble.
In this down to earth series of Lenten studies, each week focuses on a different aspect of this humble walk with God. Copies are available from Bible Study Leaders.
Rev Jo will offer studies on Wednesdays following 10.30am Holy Communion in the vestry and Wednesday evening 7.30pm at the Rectory. For other Bible Study groups please speak to our Bible Study Leaders.
