From Passion to Promise
Completion Time: 7 weeks (throughout Lent)
Instructor(s): Harriet Wilkin
Contact Info: Lisa Buffum
During this Lenten Bible study, we will be exploring 6 different stories from Jesus’ birth to the Hallelujah of Easter Sunday. Each of these stories help us reflect on the passion of Jesus and his promise to us, preparing us for Easter morning.
This Bible study will include art projects, discussion questions, and journaling. During Holy Week, you’ll create a special project that you can give to others.
You’ll need your Bible, the art supplies listed below, and 7 candles (6 purple, 1 white). Either real or battery-powered candles will work. You’ll also be provided downloadable resources through the course.
Crayons, coloring pencils, or markers
Pencil or pen
Purple ribbon or a thin wire
Flat piece of cardboard
Construction paper or scrapbook paper
A container that you can decorate and use to collect coins
We will start the Monday before Ash Wednesday to begin preparing our bodies, minds, hearts and souls for Lent.
