Following the final talk on Tuesday, there will be a light reception for Steve in the PAC. 

Lenten Small Groups begin this week. We will be reading "Mercy in the City" by Kerry Weber and exploring the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy and how we can live them out wherever God has placed us.  SIGN UP HERE

Engage more deeply in The Corporal Works of Mercy:

Feed the hungry;
Give drink to the thirsty; Clothe the naked;
Shelter the homeless;
Visit the sick;
Visit the imprisoned;
Bury the dead.

Practice the Spiritual Works of Mercy:

Advise those in doubt; Teach the unknowing; Admonish sinners;
Console the afflicted; Forgive offenses;
Be patience with those who annoy you; Pray for the living and the dead.
