Join us for the journey of Lent, a time of reflection leading up to the ultimate celebration of our Lord's resurrection.
40 Days with the Holy Spirit
This Lenten season you are invited to engage in the discipline of daily reflection using Jack Levison’s book, 40 Days with the Holy Spirit. Dr. Levison is a professor of Old Testament at Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University, and weekend resident at Hideaway. It will be our privilege to have Dr. Levison with us on February 11 just prior to Lent in preparation for our journey with the Holy Spirit.
In a departure from previous years, this study is more focused on individual reflection than small group study. However, small groups are not only welcome but invited to meet weekly to discuss the book and their reflections on Dr. Levison’s thorough, biblically-grounded book. Consider joining us in this congregation-wide discipline of study which is “intended to prompt you to reflect at your own pace and to absorb, slowly and deliberately, the presence of the Holy Spirit in your life, your community of faith, and the world. (xiv)”
Books are available for $10 on Sundays, February 4 and 11 between 9:30 and 11:00 a.m., or in the church office.
Lenten Sermon Series
On Sunday mornings throughout Lent, the sermons will be related to the themes of the church-wide Lenten study, serving as a topical preview of the following week's reading.
Even if you're not following along with the study, you'll find that the sermon series will help you frame the season of Lent, a time for reflection on your spiritual journey.
You can catch up with the sermon series over here, with audio recordings of the Sunday services, sermon summaries, and related Scriptures.
