Lenten Weekly Devotional
Everyone will receive a weekly bulletin insert for Lent that contains everything needed (except a Bible!) to have daily devotional time. It works with our Faith 5 (Share, Read, Talk, Pray, Bless), but gives a little more structure for your time as well as a serving opportunity. This can be done individually, with your household, or with another group.
Dr. Matt Brown’s Lenten Study:
Invasion of the Dead
Wednesdays, March 4 - April 1
6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m., Session Room
We use the word “resurrection” frequently in the life of the church, but have we really explored what it means? In this book, Brian K. Blount weaves together a study of resurrection as portrayed in the Revelation, the letters of Paul, and the Gospel of Mark. God breaks into our dead world and our dead churches, to proclaim a hope and healing through the power of the apocalyptic life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Join us as we explore the power that the resurrection holds for us.
Just Mercy Book Study
Mondays, March 2-30
7:00 P.M. - 8:30 P.M., Room 206
with Rebecca Guzman, Director of Spiritual Formation
& Rev. Jessica Tidwell-Weinzierl, Director of Youth Ministry
Bryan Stevenson is the executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, and a professor of law at NYU Law School. He has won relief for dozens of condemned prisoners and argued five times before the Supreme Court. Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of a young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice. Join us as we explore what his it means for people of faith.
Stations of the Cross
Saturday, March 30, 10:00 a.m., Avondale Presbyterian Church
Join our friends from CN Jenkins Memorial Presbyterian Church
at Avondale Presbyterian's beautiful prayer garden for Lenten prayer stations.
Join our friends from CN Jenkins at Avondale Presbyterian's beautiful prayer garden for Lenten prayer stations. The purpose is to help us experience the events of Holy Week with Jesus. We have stations colored by various members of our congregations representing the different events, and for a few of the stations, we have an optional activity. Avondale’s sacred garden includes a labyrinth, gorgeous wind chimes, and a cross on a hill. This event is friendly for all ages. We invite everyone to enter into a period of reflection during the Lenten season. Follow this event on Facebook for updates in the event of inclement weather.
