Lenten Series - GIVE IT UP! (Check it out!)


This year’s Lenten Series will be based on the book "Give it Up!, A Lenten Study for Adults" by Dottie Escobedo-Frank. It is available on Amazon for $9.99 in paperback or Kindle. Please purchase or obtain the book on your own.

¨ Wednesdays, February 21 & 28, March 7, 14, & 21
¨ Attend one, some, or all five sessions
¨ 6:00 PM Soup and bread; 6:30 – 7:45 PM Program

In the Introduction to the book the author writes: “I invite you to the journey of giving up something different each week (Monday through Saturday).” This will include:

Week 1: Mirrors
Week 2: Social Media
Week 3: Talking
Week 4: TV and Internet stations
Week 5: Cell phones

In advance of the first session on February 21, you are invited to practice giving up the use of mirrors based on the suggestions of Chapter One. Please know that exceptions are expected concerning work use and that if one week is not possible, to consider three days or even one day. The goal of this series is to increase our awareness of our dependence on all of these “things” which also may serve as distractions from our life of faith.

I look forward to going on this journey with you.
~ Rev. Howard Bell, sabbatical supply pastor
