Lenten Bible Study

 

Our Lenten series is called “Not a Fan: Becoming a Completely Committed Follower of Jesus.” Each week we will discover a new aspect of what it means to live a life shaped by our faith. We are using a resource by Kyle Idleman, which is described this way:
Not a Fan challenges us to consider what it really means to call ourselves a Christian. Kyle invites you to take an honest look at your relationship with Jesus. His call to follow may seem radical to us, but Jesus desires it for every believer. It is a powerful image of what can happen in our lives during this season of Lent. 
 
Just as a house can be rebuilt after it has fallen into disrepair or devastation, so God can enter in to our brokenness and completely rebuild our lives so that we can become the kind of people in who the living Christ can take up residence and through whom the loving purpose of God can become a tangible reality in this world.” We will be following the same themes in Bible Study, Sunday School, Junior Church and Sunday Worship. Personally, I really look forward to Lent. It’s a time to think about our faith that doesn’t come with too many parties or expectations of the season. It’s a time when simplicity is encouraged, instead of “bigger is better.” When quiet and time alone is encouraged, instead of loud music, shopping and crowded parties. It’s a good time to remember that Christmas is not the whole story. (even though some of us are still putting away our decorations.) It’s a great time to get back into the habit of coming to church, if you’ve been away for awhile.
