The Common Lectionary. It’s an important document that serves as a guide for the use of scriptures in
worship. Each Sunday, an Old Testament, Psalm, New Testament and Gospel lesson is suggested for
use in worship. The passages have been picked by church leaders and scholars from various
denominations. The scripture lessons often have a common theme and tone that matches the season of
the church calendar.
Wednesday evenings, 6-8 pm, April 11 through May 23, please join us for supper and a lectionary Bible study at the church as we take a closer look at the Sunday morning scripture lessons a few weeks in advance of the time they’ll be used in worship. We’ll talk about the scriptures and what we sense God’s saying to us and calling us to do. The ideas and discussion may just make their way into Pastor Sharon’s sermon the week the lessons are employed in worship.

If you want to join in the discussion, the lessons and the week they’ll be discussed, will be included in the bulletin, on the church’s Facebook page and website. Please take a minute to read through those lessons prior to coming to the study.

So we can plan for supper, please sign up on the bulletin board or let Pastor Sharon know of your interest.
