Lenten Study - Pausing On The Road to Jerusalem
Mondays, March 11, 18, 25; April 1 and 8 in Wightman Lounge

As we did with our Advent study - Pausing on the Road To Bethlehem - to prepare for Christmas, we will now take the time to unpack the themes of Lent to prepare ourselves to celebrate Easter. During this five-week study we will examine Lenten themes of: Temptation; Atonement,  Theodicy, the Breadth of God's Grace; the Place of Wealth; and the significance of Palm Sunday. Rather than thinking about something you want to give up for Lent,  why not come and make room in your heart and mind for this study?

“Docs and Dialogue”
Tuesday, March 5
7:00pm in Patton Auditorium

The next “Docs and Dialogue”, FCC’s new series of documentary film viewing and discussion, will take place on Tuesday, March 5 at 7pm in Patton Auditorium. On that night, we will see a “double feature” on the current opioid crisis in the United States.

First up will be “Understanding the Opioid Epidemic”, a 60-minute PBS production which traces the overlapping causes that have culminated in the explosive growth of opioid addiction and deaths throughout the country over the past two decades. Then, we will view the 40-minute Academy and Emmy Award nominated “Heroin(e)”, a stark portrayal of three women - one a fire chief, one the founder of a non-profit, and the third a judge - working on the front lines of the epidemic in Huntington, West Virginia, where the overdose rate is ten times the national average.

“Monthly Prayer and Meditation”
Tuesday, March 12
7:30pm-8:30pm in Sanctuary

Member, friends and guests are invited to join together in a time of prayer and meditative practice on the second Tuesday (usually) of each month. These sessions will include time for participants to offer and discuss their own prayer concerns and intentions.

See the Congregationalist Newsletter for more information.
