Programs for Lent
Wilderness: Lent at Lunch Series
WHAT: Three sessions offered after worship, from 11:30am to 12:45pm in Friendship Hall, AFTER a simple soup and bread lunch. Childcare is available plus one Tuesday at 12noon, brown bag lunch style.

March 18th following simple lunch
FOCUS: Guest facilitators on the topic of growing closer to God and to one another in wilderness times (personal, communal, political, spiritual…you get the idea).
FORMAT: Small groups gather at round tables to explore a topic related to “wilderness” which is introduced by our facilitator(s) then discussed using suggested questions, and brought back to the full group as the session closes. Child care will be offered as needed. Please let us know if you’re interested. Contact Judy Haupt @ 413-628-3268
Come to one or two or the whole series – though related, each can be joined at any point.
