In He Chose the Nails, Max Lucado observes that the last moments leading up to Jesus’ death were not left up to chance. God chose the path; he selected the nails.  Click on the image for more information about Max Lucado.

The thrust of this study is to get a new perspective on Lent.

Typically we think of Christmas/Advent as the time when things are given and

Easter/Lent as the time when things are given up. Lucado suggests and

demonstrates that Lent is all about the gift God has chosen to give us - Salvation by

God's grace gifted to us through Christ's death and resurrection.

God has chosen to:

  • Be one of us

  • Forgive us

  • Invite us into his presence

  • Love us forever

  • Give us victory

Study guides are available in the church lobby for $5.00

                                   

Feb 18 - God chose to be one with us                                               

Feb 25 - God chose to forgive us     

                                            

Mar 4 -  God chose to invite us in his presence                                                                           

Mar 11 - God chose to love us forever

 

Mar 18 - God chose to give us victory

 

Mar 25 - God chose to give us confidence

Easter Book Study by Zoom

Forgiveness, by Marjorie J. Thompson

Sundays, 6:00PM

April 4, Easter Sunday - May 9   (6 weeks)

Pastor Judi leads this study featuring Marjorie J. Thompson's book, Forgiveness.  From the website:  "forgiving others and humbly asking for forgiveness are central disciplines for all Christian believers.  In six brief chapters, the author prompts discussion with questions such as

  • Is forgiveness a Christian duty under all circumstances?

  • Is forgiveness a matter between individuals, or is it meaningful only in the context of communities?  

  • How do we get past emotional barriers to real forgiveness?

Using biblical examples and real-life situation, Thompson illustrates each chapter's theme in an informative and engaging way."

Books are available in the office ($11.00) and include a study guide.  If you prefer a "green" option, a Kindle version is availalbe online.

If the lack of a Bible is holding you back from participating, stop by the OLCCP Little Free Library and pick one up, yours to keep.  Devotional booklets are also available in the LFL.
