Adult Ministries

Lent Study
The season of Lent marks the journey towards Easter and the celebration of Christ’s resurrection and it began on Ash Wednesday, February 22. Throughout Lent, we are diving into Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5-7, through our sermon series and study options and exploring the meaning and challenge of Jesus’ teachings for our lives and the church. The study, written by Hopewell staff, includes insights from Biblical scholars and teachers from Palmer Theological Seminary and Eastern University. Sign up for one of these study groups here or by emailing Jen Lisowski. If you can’t join a study, but want to follow along in your own devotional time, the study materials are available here.
