On Sundays during the Lenten Season, from March 9 to April 13, the John Street United Methodist Church, 98 John Street, Camden, will be hosting a Lenten program designed to deepen understanding of this period of repentance leading to Easter.
On Sundays at about 11:30 am, following the 10:30 worship service, parishioners and guests are all invited to a fellowship gathering where soup and bread will be served In addition to the traditional snack food. The light fare is in keeping with Lenten self-denial, and should sustain those who choose to stay longer for the short dramas read by church members.
The readings center around two-person encounters between biblical characters over the period from the Crucifixion of Christ and his Resurrection. All the conversations occur before the reality of Easter dawns on the characters. A discussion period will follow the readings.
The programs are expected to be brief, possibly only 15 minutes, dependent on how lively the discussions are. Worship and the program are open to the public.
