Each week during Lent, The Episcopal Mission of Warren County offers faith formation events on Wednesday nights. These opportunities are part of our traditional understanding of Lent being a time for special devotion and study in our faith lives.
February 17 and February 24 – led by Ms. Diane Brant
Anti-Child Trafficking. What can we do?
Over 200,000 children are trafficked for sex in the United States annually. The best strategies for keeping trafficking out of a community or a family include learning about it, becoming vigilant, taking action. With this in mind, the Anti Child Trafficking (ACT) ministry is offering two Lenten presentations on Child Trafficking in the United States. After viewing videos, we will discuss what we have learned and consider the many ways we can fight trafficking, protect vulnerable youth and/or provide services to rescued victims.
March 2 and March 9 – Led by The Rev. Matthew Scott
Faith Practices for Families: Faith5
Families with children of all age levels are invited to come discuss a method for introducing a rewarding daily family faith ritual into their homes. Called Faith5, the program entails five daily faith practices: Sharing Highs and Lows, reading a Bible verse, talking about it, praying together, and blessing one another. We’ll discuss them on the first night and send you home to practice for a week. Then on March 9th we’ll celebrate the experience and offer help in continuing and growing this practice. Childcare and Youth activities provided!
March 16 – Led by The Rev. Tim Dyer
The Eucharistic Prayer – History and Theology
We will briefly explore the traditions and roots which have shaped The Episcopal Eucharistic Prayer Rite I and Rite II. The goal is to briefly touch on aspects of our worship that date back almost two thousand years. When we gather on Sunday mornings and participate in worship, we join with millions of Christians who have spoken the same words as the body of Christ throughout history.
And do not forget our Monday night Bible Study, led by Mr. Gary Landrio, as another opportunity for faith formation!
