Pathways to Discipleship

During Lent (February 17 - April 3) we will read the book of Luke.  By tracing Jesus' ministry of care, teaching and preaching, through self-sacrifice and triumph into new life, we begin to see a pattern for our own journeys of faith. See each week's reading assignment below.

Join classes on Sundays @10:00 and read the daily devotional to dive deeper into Luke's gospel.

Targeted to Youth Families All

Art:  This fresco, "The Prodigal Son" by Ben Long is in Montreat. In the story in Luke 15:11-32, the father restores his younger son's place in the family.  Who in our society needs to be welcomed and restored to dignity?

 

Art: View "Ten Lepers" by James C. Christensen and read the story in Luke 17:11-19. Jesus tells the leper that his faith had made him well.  Aside from curing his "leprosy", how else was he made well? What action on his part brought him to wellness?
