Lenten Study 2021

Wednesday, February 17, 2021 – Welcome Message

Welcome to Lent and 40 days in the Gospel of John! 

Read: John 1:1-5

As I said in my welcome video, I am so happy that we are going on this journey together and I am excited to “just listen” with you. 

As a reminder, each day you will receive an email from Pastor Jim, Pastor Loida or myself.  You will not receive an email on Sunday.  Each email will include a reading assignment, a video to watch, some questions for you to consider and a daily activity for you to complete.  If you ever have any questions during the study or do not receive your daily email, please email me at kyoung@lakedeatonumc.com.  It is also important to know that you can access all the daily content on our Lake Deaton Grows website (www.lakedeatongrows.com).  This is a great resource if have issues with your email or want to share this study with a friend.  

If you do not have a Bible yet, today is the day to go and get one.  You might also want to get a journal to write down your thoughts. 

So What Activity:  Each day you will have a “So What” Activity.  This is an activity to challenge you to do something with what you have read and watched.  Today you have three activities.

  1. If you woke up early there may still be time swing by Lake Deaton in your golf cart or car for drive-thru ashes.  Pastors Jim, Loida and I will be outside starting at 7:30am until 9am.  Come in your golf cart or car.
  2. Join us tonight for our Ash Wednesday Service and maybe even bring a friend.  The service is at 5pm.  We will also be streaming online.
  3. Watch this YouTube video about Lent.
