Grow Deeper During Lent

Each year since we launched in 2012, Hope has offered Lenten Communities -- short-term electives designed to help us grow deeper with God and others. At least one of these offerings is always a "Virtual" community -- allowing participants to accommodate their unique schedules while connecting in a digital community for growth and accountability.

In 2017, our digital offering will be "Journey Through the Psalms" -- reading all 150 Psalms during the 40 days of Lent. Those who sign up will receive a brief introductory email on the Sunday prior that includes a link to the week's digital community bulletin board. Non-threatening questions offer readers a chance to reflect and engage each other.

In addition, we offer a book club with two face-to-face gatherings on America's Original Sin: Racism, White Privilege & the Bridge to a New America by Jim Wallis. We'll read on our own -- then gather with friends from Washington Shores Presbyterian at WSPC on Sundays 3/19 and 4/2 from 2-3:30 pm. We'll take pre-orders for a box lunch from Honeybaked Ham if Hopesters are interested (the WSPC folks will just be exiting church). In our first gathering, we'll address Chapters 1-5; on 4/2 we'll discuss Chapters 6-10. We have several copies of the book available at 50 percent off ($11 each).

Sign up at church or email Nancy at hopenona@gmail.com.
