During the Lenten season, First Congregational Church has two options for adults to deepen their faithful journey. On Wednesdays, through April 9 from 6:30 to 8 p.m., there will be a book discussion led by the Rev. Dr. John Schluep. The focus of the study will be the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, supplemented with the book by John Ortberg, “Who Is This Man: The Unpredictable Impact of the Inescapable Jesus.” The cost is $12 per book.
The second opportunity is “Rest in God: A Lenten Invitation” on Thursdays through April 10 from 6 to 6:30 p.m. A guided contemplation led by the Rev. Matt Wooster will teach and lead the ancient spiritual practices of Contemplative Meditation and Lectio Divina, a Latin phrase meaning “holy reading” of scripture. This opportunity for spiritual practice is designed to open space in people’s lives to listen when God is speaking to them
and within them. The 40 days of Lent are modeled on the 40 days Jesus spent in the wilderness, and the 40 years spent by the Hebrews in the wilderness after the Exodus from Egypt.
First Congregational Church of Tallmadge is located at 85 Heritage Drive. For more information, call 330-633 4931 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
