Now Is The Time Lent Study

Now Is The Time Lent Series


For Lent 2023 we will be using the ELCA's study, Now Is The Time, by Dr. Joyce Caldwell. This study will be a mix of individual reading and reflection, and group conversation. There will be online options for Sunday Adult Forum large-group sessions, as well as small group meetings. Participant Journals can be picked up at church. There is a suggested donation of $10 to help cover the cost of printing and other supplies. (Want a digital copy? Click here.) Use the links below to access online content.
