Adult Education in Lent 2017, “A Holy Lent”

For Lent 2017, adult education on Sundays at Church of the Redeemer is “A Holy Lent: Spiritual discipline and faith formation around our Baptismal Covenant.”

We will talk about the faith formation to which we are invited as we travel toward Holy Week and Easter. Learn some new ways that you can renew your relationship with God this Lent.

Because of renovations, “A Holy Lent” meets in the parish hall at 9:30 am from March 5 through April 2. The parish hall is in the lower level of the main building at Church of the Redeemer, 6210 181st Street in Kenmore, Washington. You are welcome to join us. There is no charge. Bring your questions and your friends.
