The Good and Beautiful Life

Lenten Small Group Book Studies

Starting February 16, small groups will meet weekly in host homes for facilitated study using the book, The Good and Beautiful Life: Putting on the Character of Christ by James Bryan Smith. Participants will review the importance of the kingdom of God in our daily lives. By exploring the essential message of Jesus, we can see how to live a virtuous life of gladness and kindness. The study will provide encouragement to move forward into 2015 with positive spiritual growth and certainty that God continues to do good works in us and through us.

Purchase a Book on Sundays or Wednesdays, February 1 - 15 in the FBC hallway for $10 or buy online (Kindle, audio and cd versions available online only).

Lenten Services

Wednesdays, February 18 - April 5   Dr. Jim Somerville leads a Journey to the Cross series focusing on The Good and Beautiful Life: Putting on the Character of Christ by James Bryan Smith at 6:15 p.m. in the Sanctuary beginning with the:

CANCELED  Ash Wednesday service - Wednesday, February 18. 
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent in the Christian Church. The name dies cinerum (day of ashes) likely dates from as early as the eighth century. Ashes are placed on the foreheads of the congregants in the sign of a cross. This service begins a series of Wednesday services continuing through Holy Week called Journey to the Cross, a time of reflection and penitence, within the reality of grace found in Jesus Christ and His death on the cross.

Sundays, February 21 - April  5  Lenten sermon series (Jim Somerville preaching)

Thursday, April 2   5 pm  Dinner and Seder sampling (no dinner on Wednesday, April 1)

Tickets ($6) are required and are available for purchase in the reception room on Sunday mornings and by the food service tellers on Wednesday evenings during Lent.
The Seder meal is traditionally a joyful family dinner which is held in Jewish homes on Passover and is the final meal Jesus ate with his disciples before his arrest and crucifixion. Our meal will be a simple, kid-friendly dinner (chicken tenders, mac-n-cheese, green beans and a cookie) followed by a shortened sampling of the Passover meal and worship. The Seder will take place around the tables and will be led by members of our staff.

 6:30 pm  Maundy Thursday Service in the Sanctuary (Jim Somerville preaching)

Sunday, March 15  9:30 a.m.-1 p.m. - Journey to the Cross Family Event in the Dining Hall. Our church family is invited to join our children as we travel through five multi-sensory, engaging stations that deliver the message of Easter in a personal way.
