5 for 5 in Lent:
Five Small Groups for Five Weeks
(beginning the week of February 22)
As part of our VISION 2014 commitment to “invite more adults into small groups for Bible study and theological reflection”, EVERYONE IS INVITED to join one of 5 small groups meeting for 5 weeks in the season of Lent.
If you have never been part of a small Bible study group before, then make this the time to try something new! THIS is our special Lent program. It is a commitment to grow spiritually and to grow in community.
These five are geographically distributed to make it more convenient for all, but feel free to join the one that best suits your schedule.

Being Christian is a book by former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams about the basic practices of the Christian life. Bishop Stephen Lane has invited the entire Diocese of Maine to study this book in Lent. All participants will be invited to join our Bishop on March 25 or 26 in a live stream web discussion of the book.
The Epistle of James groups will use Mark A. Copeland’s course of study of this biblical book which speaks of handling trials and temptations, understanding the relation between faith and works, the proper use of the tongue and display of wisdom, and the value of humility, patience and prayer.
