Jesus’ Vocation as Suffering Servant through Holy Reading in Small Groups

During last year’s theme of Prayer, over 100 members at First not only read their Bible as a Lenten discipline, but meditated and prayed while they read. Experiencing Scripture in this way increases knowledge of the stories, but is also a way of receiving God’s wisdom, grace and love. In 2015, in response to popular demand, we’re going to do holy reading again, only this time our theme will center around Jesus’ vocation as suffering servant.

Sign up at the Connecting Point or online at Sign Up Genius for the small group of your choice, based on time or other preferences. When your group meets, a trained facilitator (fellow member at First) will lead your group through reading a resource developed by our own membership including art and readings centered on the suffering servant.

Lent at First has always been a great way to get to know others, come closer to God and learn something new. Join a small group this year so that you may be fully prepared to receive the gift of Easter!
