2023 Lenten All-Church Study
The season of Lent is a special time of prayer and reflection for Christians. This Lent Manchester UMC will offer a special Sermon Series and an accompanying All Church Study based off of the works of Cole Author Riley’s book, This Here Flesh: Spirituality, Liberation, and the Stories That Make Us. Small groups are forming now and all are encouraged to join a small group meeting either in person, or online. Groups will meet for 5 weeks starting on February 26th. The curriculum for this study is free, and the book reading is encouraged, but optional. Pick up your curriculum and the New York Times, best-selling book today at the Information Center. Registration for the All Church Study Groups can be found below. For more information please email Pastor Winter Hamilton.
In addition to our Sermon Series and All Church Study Small Groups, a Contemplative Prayer Service will be offered that meets on Wednesday nights in the Chapel at 6:30 pm throughout the month of March. The Contemplative Prayer Group will participate in breath prayers, Taizé Chanting, and Lectio Divina. No registration is required for the Wednesday evening Contemplative Prayer Service.
