Lent at FCC

Lent is a 40 day season (not including Sundays) that provides space for self-examination, reflection, and spiritual preparation.  It is an invitation for deep inner work, as well as communal conversation and repentance.  May the following opportunities for worship, prayer, and study with FCC help create a meaningful experience for you this Lent.

Join friends in the community for a powerful meditation on the Last Seven Words of Christ in scripture, music, art and reflection.

Alleluia! He is risen indeed! Join us for special music, new members received, and joyful celebration of the resurrection. Children will remain with their families in the Sanctuary for a lively and engaging worship.



The books and class topics were chosen this year to provide opportunities for growth
and reflection specifically during Lent.  All are welcome!


Lenten Study 
Entering the Passion of Jesus: A Beginner’s Guide to Holy Week by Dr. Amy-Jill Levine
Sundays after worship in the Family Room (February 26 – April 2) or
Wednesdays at 10 am in Genesis Room (March 1 – April 5)
Pastor Dawnn Brumfield, Facilitator

What are you willing to risk?  The days leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection were filled with risk for him and others.  Using the text as a backdrop, Pastor Dawnn will lead us in a six-week study that will capture us right where we are. Together we will discuss the risks we take in everyday life, reading through the ethical and spiritual questions that are raised in the bible and challenging ourselves to enter the passion of Jesus through the eyes of others.  

Ongoing Book Study
Sundays after worship in the Parlor (February 26, March 5, 19 & 26)
Grateful: the Transformative Power of Giving Thanks by Diana Butler Bass.
Trina Hayes, Facilitator
The book offers ideas for bridging the gap between our desire to be grateful and our ability to behave gratefully. Booklist describes it as “simultaneously a meditation and celebration.”  The class will continue on  February 26, and March 5, 19 and 26, April 2, 23, 30, and May 7.

The Other Dr. Gilmer: Two Men, a Murder, and an Unlikely Fight for Justice 
by Benjamin Gilmer 
Trina Hayes, Facilitator
This selection explores the incarceration of the mentally ill. When Benjamin Gilmer joined a medical practice, he found that another, unrelated Dr. Gilmer had practiced there and was now serving a life sentence for the murder of his father. Benjamin began investigating Vince Gilmer’s life trying to reconcile the beloved doctor his patients remembered with the cold-blooded killer.
