Pohick's series of Lenten Suppers, Studies and Services will begin on Wednesday, February 21 at 6:30 pm in the Parish House and run over five weeks. For adults, the rector will offer a class entitled, “The Life & Legacy of Martin Luther,” while our seminarian Wesley Arning will offer an adult study, “How the Psalms will Save Your Life.” C. S. Lewis-Institute graduate Kelly Uribe will also lead a five-week series, "Teach Us to Pray"
For their Lenten programs, our teens and pre-teens will be exploring the Saints, while the younger children will learn about Heroes and Heroines of the Bible. Childcare is available for ages three and under during the class time. The evenings each begin with a potluck supper (6:30 - 7:05 pm) prior to the studies themselves (7:10 - 7:50 pm). These are then capped off by a worship service from 8 - 8:30 pm featuring Celtic prayers and music. The weekly event is free, but bring along your favorite entree, salad or dessert to share!
The Life and Legacy of Martin Luther. Led by the Rev. Donald D. Binder, PhD, Rector. We are now in the 500th anniversary year of the publication of Martin Luther's Ninety-Five Theses. That document, which challenged the then-corrupt Catholic Church and sparked the Protestant Reformation, not only changed the course of Western Christendom, but all of Western civilization. In this course we will explore how Luther rose from being a humble monk in a German monastery to the leader of the most impactful religious movement of the past 1,000 years.
How the Psalms will Save your Life. Led by Wesley Arning, Seminarian. What are the Psalms and where did they come from? This book of the Bible has made a powerful impact on the church and the lives of so many believers. We will be exploring why that is, and how praying the Psalms may be one of the most important things we do as Christians.
Teach Us to Pray. Led by Kelly Uribe, C.S. Lewis Institute Graduate. How should we pray? This question rings as true today as it did 2,000 years ago when Jesus' disciples asked him the same question. Let's face it, prayer can seem daunting. Today, there are a myriad of articles, books, and resources "about" prayer. But in response to his disciples' question, Jesus didn't talk about "how" to pray, he simply prayed. He began that prayer with "Our Father," inviting us to approach God with child-like faith and honesty.
