Shrove Tuesday Dinner and Lenten Kickoff
February 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Our 2024 Lenten program begins on Shrove Tuesday, February 13, with a Kickoff dinner and programs for children and youth, and a speaker for the adults! Serving a typical Shrove Tuesday dinner (pancakes), everyone is invited to gather in the Fellowship Hall at 6:00 p.m. for supper. Children and youth programs and a speaker presentation for adults begins at 6:45 p.m. Please RSVP for the dinner.
You can sign up for small groups beginning January 24 using Realm.
A big part of adult faith formation at MPPC are Lenten Small Groups and we are beginning to line up Small Group leaders and facilitators. If you would like to be a Small Group leader, please contact Dan Wiard or Trish Snead in the Church office. If you are curious about the study and what it might “look like” being a Small Group leader, come to one of the training sessions and get a hands-on look at the material and what a lesson might “feel like.” You are invited and can sign up for one of the training sessions on Realm. The dates of the training events: Sunday, January 28, 12:15-1:45 p.m. with a light lunch included, or Wednesday, January 31, 7 p.m. via Zoom. Deadline to register for the Sunday training event is Thursday, January 25. Childcare will be available at the Sunday training event upon request.
This year we will be using Cynthia M. Campbell and Christine Coy Fohr’s Meeting Jesus at the Table. In this study, small groups will look at many of the stories of Jesus sharing a meal with disciples, friends, even tax collectors and Pharisees and the wisdom Jesus imparts. Participant’s books will be available in the church office after January 24 and the suggested donation is $10 per book. (Small group leaders will receive a complimentary copy.)
