Lenten Small Groups - 2017

For many of us, life in our country is more chaotic now than it has been in any other time in our lives.  How can we stay spiritually grounded? How do strive for justice from a place of love? We will explore these questions during the season of Lent (the 40 days prior to Easter) as we explore the Baptismal Covenant.  The Baptismal Covenant is comprised of the creed and five questions. For each question, we will have a plenary session with a speaker for the first hour and then we will break into small groups to go even deeper.  


Ash Wednesday is March 1st which begins the season of Lent (remembering Jesus’ 40 days in the desert as we lead up to Easter).  Dr. Shauna Hannan will be our kick off speaker for the season when she comes to the Cathedral on Friday, March 3rd.  Then for the next five Sundays, the sermons will correlate with the five questions listed in the Baptismal Covenant for the Episcopal Church.


Here is the schedule for Sunday Morning Adult Class at 10:15

March 5:  Will you continue in the apostles' teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in the prayers?

March 12:  Will you persevere in resisting evil, and, whenever you fall into sin, repent and return to the Lord?

March 19:  Will you proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ?

March 26:  Will you seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself?

April 2:  Will you strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being?

On each of these Sundays, the preacher for the day will meet in Classroom A and lead a discussion on the Baptismal Covenant question that was preached in the sermon.  This should create a lot of interesting dialogue and we encourage you to come join us.


Here is the schedule for TNAC:
