in the Fellowship Hall
Stuck. You’ve been there. So, have I.
What now? Rev the motor? Try reverse? Jiggle the handle? Throw gravel under the tires? Google a tutorial? Cuss? Pray? Ask someone for a push?
There’s no one-size fits all answer to all the ways we get stuck. But every person who’s ever found a way forward has valuable wisdom to share!
At MidWeek Fellowship, the church cares for the church. We pray together, break bread together, and tell our stories. It’s the perfect setting for bringing our own wisdom and experience to bear on the obstacles we all face as we try to… well, be more devoted to Bible reading, find a theologian who speaks our language, get more out of spiritual practices, put our faith in action, and find more balance in our pursuit of wholeness.
We all get stuck, so who better to help one another? How better to practice Lent? Come join us and bring a friend for this fun and enlightening series! We need to hear what you have learned!
