Lenten Sermon Series
Beginning Ash Wednesday, Asbury UMC will focus our hearts in Lent on the love of Christ that transcends all understanding. Lent begins this year on Valentine’s Day with Ash Wednesday and ends the day before April Fool’s, with Easter on March 31st.
Our friends at Bentonville FUMC developed a sermon theme and small group study called “Foolish Love.” Should your small group or Sunday School class like to participate in this Lenten study, there are daily devotional materials, small group study booklets, and companion videos available. Join in the “Foolish Love” conversation this Lent!
Lenten Lunch Series
Join the greater Little Rock United Methodist community in a weekly Lenten Lunch Series beginning Tuesday February 20th! We will round robin during this special time as we gather together for lunch and a devotional hour.
Faith United Methodist will host our next Lenten Lunch Feb. 27th from Noon-1pm for a light lunch and time of worship.
March 5th will be hosted by Trinity UMC. Our penultimate time together will occur at Highland Valley UMC, and our final meeting will take place at St. Paul Maumelle UMC on Pinnacle Valley Road in Little Rock. We hope you can join us for this unique series during our time of Lent!
Spiritual Formation Group
Come join Rev. Heather Rose for this exciting new exploration! Beginning February 18th, the first Sunday of Lent, we will be working through Seven Sacred Pauses, a book by Macrina Wiederkehr. This group will meet weekly from 4:30-6pm.
Spiritual formation can mean a variety of things to different people. This study will help us focus on becoming more mindful of presence–feeling the presence of God and being more present ourselves in ways that can enrich our daily prayer lives.
Lent is an Anglo-Saxon root word that refers to the lengthening of days or spring, which is the season when blooming happens. May all of our Lenten journeys encourage new growth the practice of prayer, fasting, giving, and service as we contemplate the journey of Jesus to the cross and our own faith journeys.
Please register or contact the church office by February 13 so books can be ordered. Thank you! (registration link: click here!)
