Lenten/Easter Study: “The Passion Play: Living the Story of Christ’s Last Days” by Rob Fuquay
March 4 & 18 and April 1, 8, 15 & 22 from 6:15 p.m. - 7:15 p.m.
Leader: Pastor Meghan Roth-Clayton
You are invited to this 6-part study led by Pastor Meghan on Wednesdays, March 4, 18, and April 1—22 from 6:15—7:15 pm. With few exceptions, the Oberammergau Passion Play has been presented by the inhabitants of the village of Oberammergau, Bavaria, Germany every 10 years since 1634. The play is a staging of Jesus' Passion story, covering the final period of his life from his visit to Jerusalem to the journey to the cross. Pastor Meghan, her husband Josh and several church members will be traveling to Germany to see the Passion Play this June. This study is open to all interested in the biblical story of the Passion Play. Register with Pastor Meghan (229-1771 Ext 261) or email@example.com or by clicking here.
“The Grace of Les Miserables”
Begins March 4 through April 8 from 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Leader: Rev. David Hindman
Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables is a truly epic story. Whether you’ve tackled the 1,400-page 19th century novel, witnessed the Broadway musical, or seen the several screen adaptations of it, you already know the power of this story. Each Wednesday (March 4-April 8) during the season of Lent, 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m., Rev. David Hindman will facilitate a study of this classic work using Matt Rawle's, The Grace of Les Misérables, which explores six ideals found in the story — grace, justice, poverty, revolution, love, and hope—each represented by a character in Hugo’s story. As these imperfect yet readily recognizable characters interact, we can see how these ideals work together in the world. The study brings us to the intersection of Church and Pop Culture by drawing parallels between the iconic story and our Christian calling, inviting participants both to understand our faith and live it out in the world. Interested persons should contact Cindy Banek (229-1771 Ext 258) or firstname.lastname@example.org to register or click here.
