What is Lent and why does it last forty days?
We hope that you will join us for Ash Wednesday Service on Wednesday, Feb. 14th @ 6 pm. The service will be held at Grace and Peace Community UMC, (Rev. Zelphia Mobley, Pastor) located at 451 Kennett, Pontiac MI 48340. Tel. 248-334-3280. Following Ash Wednesday service, a Bible Study will continue each Wednesday Feb 21-Mar 14, 6:00 P.M. – 7:30 P.M.) This Lenten Bible Study series is entitled:
Sketches of Jesus’ Journey from Baptism to Crucifixion and Resurrection
Each Bible Study will open with a brief devotion by Bible study participants, followed by an overview of the evening’s study questions. The questions for each Bible Study will be posted on St. John’s website (stjohnumcpontiac.org), one week prior to the meeting times. Participants will break up into small groups and focus on the questions. Following small group discussion sessions, I will engage group participants in a discussion on the scripture and the questions provided. Everyone will have the opportunity to express his or her perceptions and aspirations. All are welcome. This will be a season for great spiritual Growth. Get your Growth on at St. John UMC.
Rev. Dr. Lester Mangum
