Jan. 13 to Mar. 2 - Churchwide Study on Sabbath. Everyone is invited to take part in a churchwide study on Sabbath and how it can be a core practice for our lives. The Sabbath curriculum/study guide walks you through what Sabbath is, the roots and tradition of Sabbath in scripture, how to develop your own theology of Sabbath, rituals for keeping Sabbath, and utilizing Sabbath as a practice for communal discernment.
The study guide is available for individuals, families, small groups, or church school classes. The final draft of the study guide will be released on January 6th. Also, if your small group or church school class plans to use the study guide together please let Pastor Morgan know. The Pastors will be hosting a discussion group on the study guide Tuesdays (Jan 14, 21, 28; Feb 4, 11, 18, 25; Mar 3) from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the Boardroom or via Zoom (video chat).
After the eight-week congregational curriculum study in January and February, through conversations and rituals at our Wednesday evening Lenten Suppers (Mar. 11, 18, 25, & Apr. 1), we will move into a churchwide exploration of what the barriers are that come with practicing Sabbath as well as what Sabbath practically looks like in our lives today.
Finally, throughout Eastertide, we will further discern together what the practice of Sabbath can mean for our committees, small groups, and life together at Calvary. To be kept up-to-date on all that is happening around this churchwide study and conversation, make sure you are subscribed to our E-news.
