Lenten Sermon Series (Sundays February 21st – April 3rd)
COA will embark on a new sermon series for Lent called Jesus “IRL” (In Real Life).
In these highly virtual pandemic times, perhaps we are all challenged about how we connect to God and to each other. Jesus is familiar with redefining connection and broadening the meaning of community, as it was the cornerstone of His ministry. This is especially evident in the Gospel of Luke. In this series, each week we will examine how Jesus authentically connects with other people in Luke, and how He challenges us to connect as well.
Virtual Lenten Book Study (7-8:30 on March 8th and March 24th)
Join us for a special virtual Lenten small group discussion on the book:
This book may not seem very religious or spiritual, but you will be surprised. It is one of the best Pastor Jessie has read in a long time; especially thought provoking and meaningful in this covid digital age. It was published just this past October of 2020 by a young man who has also served as the Humanist Chaplain at Harvard University. He grew up in an incredibly conservative evangelical environment, and through life experiences, wound up landing in the camp of open-minded atheists. He is able to see things like Church from a critical, but experienced distance, and I am confident there is so much to learn from him!
YOU DO NOT NEED TO READ THE WHOLE BOOK TO BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE—all are welcome at one or both of these studies!
Two Sessions: Monday March 8 and Wednesday March 24 –both 7:00-8:30 PM
