Lectio Divina for Beginners
Sundays @ 4pm
In-person in South Sanctuary of the church
Each Sunday, Pastor Cory leads a time of praying through the Scriptures from 4-5pm and will be focusing on Lenten passages. Each week, they'll use a centuries-old practice called Lectio Divina that helps us think on and pray through a passage of the Bible. Then, they'll follow with discussion and prayer. Our hopes are that this will be part group experience and part reflective worship experience. Childcare provided.
