Lent at St. John the Divine

In the past year, we have had to set aside fellowship and traditions we hold dear. This year, don’t walk the path of Lent alone. Join your church family as we rediscover purpose, find belonging, and grow in our identity as followers of Christ.

Lenten Groups
Trusting God: Redeeming Promises of the Word
Beginning the week of February 15
Life groups are a place to connect, study, and grow together. Beginning the week of February 15, our groups will be studying Trusting God: Redeeming Promises of the Word, by the Rev. Charlie Holt. This Lent, we encourage you to explore, in community with a life group, the five great covenant promises of the Bible that all find their “Yes” in the finished work of Jesus Christ.

Read more about the study,  sign up for a Life Group, and purchase the devotional book here. For information, contact the Rev. Charlie Holt.
