Lent 2017

An Invitation to the Gospel of John

Read through the Gospel of John by Easter, and encounter the compelling story of Jesus, the Son of God, who works miracles and draws close to people like you and me. His goal is to grow people, just like God grows the world: From the Ground Up.

Reading Scripture

When you read a section of the Bible each day, try to focus on one or two verses that make an impression on you. Underline those verses, or write them down, along with what you observed. Keeping a Bible notebook or journal is among the most effective ways to make your Bible reading a rich and rewarding experience.

A Prayer for Lent

Almighty and everliving God, ruler of all things in heaven and earth, hear our prayers for our St. Mark United Methodist Church family. Grow us from the ground up. Strengthen the faithful, arouse the careless, and restore the brokenhearted. Grant us all things necessary for our life together, and bring us all to be of one heart and mind within your holy Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
