2024 Adult Lenten Study

Let’s prepare for Easter! Please join our Zoom Bible, book, and video study by Susan Robb: Remember: God’s Covenants and the Cross

Remember the God who remembers us.

God’s covenants throughout the Old Testament show the character of God’s promises to the people of Israel. In this book, Susan Robb leads readers through the covenants with Noah, Abraham, Moses, and David, followed by the new covenant established on Maundy Thursday. The Lenten story culminates with an examination of the cross as another example of God’s promise for a new world.

Susan Robb teaches readers the basic lessons of the covenants through a mixture of biblical history and personal stories. Her pastoral character and warm tone provide a basis for understanding God’s promises through history and the role of Jesus’s passion and crucifixion in the history of the covenants.

Please join us for this six-week Lenten study on Zoom: Tuesdays, 3:30-5PM from February 20 through March 26, 2024.
