Faith Formation Opportunities in Lent
All are welcome to join us for any of these adult faith formation experiences--opportunities for learning, spiritual deepening, and communal connection--here at Storrs Congregational during the season of Lent:
Soul Suppers Worship - Mid-week Worship with Holy Communion
Join us at 5:45 pm on each Wednesday of Lent (March 12, 19, & 26; April 2, 9, & 16) for a half-hour contemplative worship service including the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper, Holy Communion. Services will be held in the Waggoner Chapel, our small chapel space adjacent to our off-street parking lot and church office entrance.
Note that these worship services precede our 6:30 pmLenten mid-week adult formation series.
Soul Suppers Formation -- An Adult Formation series for Lent
Journey through Lent together with Pastors Matt and Nancy by participating in a weekly get together on Wednesdays, starting at 6:30 on March 12th . We are inviting interested parties to commit to a daily devotional through Lent, which we will come together to study and reflect upon together on Wednesdays. Participation in one Wednesday does not require participation in every single week, but it is necessary that there is intentional engagement with the devotional book, called Lenten Journey: Marks of the Christian during the week leading up to your participation. The book itself will facilitate rich conversation: it will help us to focus on a whole host of attributes and characteristics (well, marks!) we are called to bear. You'll be surprised by some of them, challenged by others, and affirmed by still more!
Anyone who wishes to engage in this study, either for one week or all five, should please pre-register atstorrscongchurch.wufoo.com/forms/register-for-soul-suppers-formation/
Note that this study follows our 5:45 pm Lenten mid-week worship.
