New Lectio Divina Small Groups

Lectio divina is an ancient practice of reading, meditiation, and prayer focused on Holy Scripture. It is a powerful way to grow in the spirit and connect with a group for fellowship and support.
We are excited to offer three new opportunities to engage with this practice. Groups will meet Wednesdays at 11:00 am, Wednesdays at 7:00 pm, and Sundays at 5:00 pm at the church. We will spend an hour reading Scripture, reflecting, and talking with one another. There will also be a Friday evening group meeting at a church member’s home in Allen.
