Women's Bible Study

WE ARE CALLED!

Thursday, February 6th @ 10am

The women of MLC gather monthly in the church nathex/entryway for Bible study on the first Thursday of the month.  The study is found in GATHER magazine.  If you don’t subscribe to the magazine, don’t worry, come anyway.  All women are always welcome!

The current study series is:  We are called!  by Kathryn A. Kleinhans.  This second session, The Call of Jesus, focuses on Jesus’ calling the disciples, on Jesus’ call to Saul (Paul) on the road to Damascus, and on Jesus’ call to all people to take up the cross and follow.  As Christians, how do we see ourselves in these stories today?  How do we respond to the call of Jesus?

Taize Service

A service of song, silence and contemplation – February 23rd @ 6pm

 

This year we are introducing a new 30-40 minute service once a month on a Sunday evening. This is a beautiful reflective service of music, scripture and prayer, which originated at the Taize Community in the Burgundy region of France. Our service will follow closely the original service (many of the hymns/chants we already sing in our services) with some minor adaptations. We will worship in quiet and candlelight.

The Taizé Community is an ecumenical Christian monastic fraternity in Taizé, Saône-et-Loire, Burgundy, France. It is composed of more than one hundred brothers, from Catholic and Protestant traditions, who originate from about thirty countries across the world. It was founded in 1940 by Brother Roger Schütz, a Reformed Protestant.

Join us as we begin a new year with Taize worship services.  All are welcome!
