SURPRISED BY HOPE
with Rev. Bill Gaydos
 
This new Sunday Study group, led by Rev. Bill Gaydos, will meet from 9:30-10:30am between the two worship services.  We will be using the book Surprised by Hope by N.T. Wright, an Anglican Bishop and one of the world’s leading Biblical scholars. 
 
In he opening chapter he says that from the ancient time to the present some of the greatest philosophers and teachers have said that “what you think about death, and life beyond it, is the key to thinking seriously about everything else in life.” 
 
Join us and gain a better understanding of “The Christian’s Great Hope.”

A Brown-Bag Lunch Lenten Series
The Biblical History of Passover
A brown-bag lunch class in the CLC (drinks provided) on six Wednesdays led by our own Pete Tsolinas, beginning at noon on February 17. This class is designed for us to examine the biblical account of the Exodus as described in Scripture, with special emphasis on the event of the Passover, and the subsequent observances of the Passover meal by the Jewish people. Bring a light lunch and enjoy the discussion, and we will observe all the social distancing safety protocols.
 

This class will also prepare us for the Lenten observance of Maundy Thursday, on April 1, when we will have an actual Seder meal, led by the Rev. Jim Fox of Chosen People Ministries, with the theme “Messiah in the Passover” — as we’re being reminded how Jesus, along with his disciples, conducted the Passover meal as it was given in Exodus 12, that even as he did this, he knew the supper would illustrate his death for the sin of humankind to generations yet unborn. By using the traditional elements of Jewish Passover Seder, we will learn their history, what each element represents, and how the Passover is fulfilled through Jesus’ death at Calvary.
