Join A Small Group for Lent!
The season of Lent is a special time of prayer and reflection for Christians. It’s also an ideal time for us to reorient our hearts and minds toward loving God and each other more deeply. Starting Sunday, February 21 through the week of March 21, Manchester UMC will offer a special 5-week Sermon Series and an accompanying All Church Study called The Fast I Choose: Living with Intentionality.
The church is an “intentional community.” And, in our baptism we promise to live intentionally in five specific ways: through our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness. This Lent we will spend one week focusing on each of these promises.
Our Lenten All-Church Study brings together elements of music, scripture, prayer, sermon reflection, and spiritual formation practices! By coming to worship and attending a Lent small group during this time period, you’ll encounter caring people as you learn more about God and yourself. Together, we’ll examine our response as followers of Jesus and intentionally live into these promises.
