Lent at Bethany – Getting Ready for Easter

forgive lent 2016-01Wow! It is Lent – starting today! Ash Wednesday begins our 40 day journey to the cross and to an empty tomb. Over these 40 days we will have a lot going on. All these options are meant to provide us with entry points into the holy season of Lent, not to overwhelm our schedules. So, here’s what you need to know. First, the sermons for the next 6 weeks will be on forgiveness. Verla Miller preaches February 14 and Pastor Kelli the remainder of Lent as we explore “Forgive: more than a word.” Pastor Kelli is using The Book of Forgiving: The Fourfold Path for Healing Ourselves and Our World by Desmond Tutu and Mpho Tutu to guide the series.

Each day in Lent, Pastor Kelli is offering a Lent Devotional Video in coordination with our Lent Devotional Books “Fellowship of Prayer.” These are available on the church’s facebook page or on the church’s YouTube page.

The House Meetings (gatherings at Pastor Kelli and Nick’s house) are almost filled up! Make sure to sign up at church this Sunday for February 17, March 2 (childcare available) or March 16. These gatherings are designed to open up conversation around one question: What is the biggest pressure on you or your family?

After careful consideration, the Chili Cook-Off is moved back one week to March 6 directly following church. This will mean we add some time to our gathering, eating and celebrating that is normally done at the Community Gathering Lunch (Cabinet and Council Lunch). In combining the two, we hope to include as many people as possible in one event! We will conclude our time together by 2 pm.

Disciples churches in the Tulsa area are working together to rotate events during lent. See the list below of dates where we can celebrate together: We are Family!
