All are invited to "God Questions; God Answers" Lenten services

Attendees of  March 16 "God Questions; God Answers" enjoy some time for fellowship during the soup and sandwich meal.

Lent is a time of reflection, fasting and growing closer to God. During the Wednesdays in Lent, Grace Lutheran Church has been offering a study series, “God Questions; God Answers.”
Before the service begins, members of Grace have the chance to enjoy a time of fellowship during the soup and sandwich meal.
The service features a time for reflection and confessional litany (reading messages aloud together asking God for forgiveness.) Attendees pray together for strength and discipline of commitments they have made to Lent. Next comes the Bible study which follows a themed question. For example, during the first Lenten service of the series on March 16, the question was “How is God present in our lives?” Attendees read the Bible together and talked about God after working on questions included with the Bible study. The night also included a Nooma DVD: Breathe asking, “How is God present in our lives?”
Children also were entertained with Lent themed activities and crafts in another room. The kids enjoyed making a lamb out of craft supplies during the “Lamb of God” activity.
All are invited to the next “God Questions; God Answers” which will be held this Wednesday after the soup and sandwich meal in the social hall. The soup and sandwich meal begins at 6:30 p.m.
