Lenten Wednesdays: Who Is My Neighbor? | March 13 – April 10
On Wednesday evenings this Lent, we will explore the Jesus’ commandment to love our neighbors as ourselves through the series, “Who Is My Neighbor?” Each week, we’ll host a speaker who will answer this question from the perspective of their unique ministry. Join us as we learn about our common humanity with those neighbors we might not encounter in our daily lives. Learn more about the lineup of speakers here. In addition, each Wednesday you’re invited to participate in the season of Lent in any of the following ways as you’re able: walk the Stations of the Cross at 5:00 p.m. using our new set of stations, celebrate the Eucharist together at 6:00, share a meal at 6:30, and end the evening with the solemn beauty of sung Compline at 8:00.
Children will meet during the adult speaker session to learn how to become God’s hands and feet in their neighborhoods, and the world, while they learn what it means to love like Jesus. Each week they’ll hear a Bible-based story to explore concepts about kindness, compassion, and justice in age-appropriate ways through story, wondering, games, and crafts. Please register your child(ren) in Realm to determine how many volunteers will be needed. Youth will meet for regular programming in the Youth Center after sharing dinner in Roper Hall.
