Event description
“BEHOLD THE BRIDEGROOM: PREPARING FOR LENT WITH THE PARABLES OF JESUS”

About this Event

DID YOU KNOW...?

When people talk about the ministry of Jesus, it is easy to focus on His miracles. But one of the most exciting things about His ministry was His teaching style. Jesus taught through parables. Simple, memorable, stories intended to impart a spiritual lesson, often with humble imagery, each with a single lesson. What better way to begin the season of Great Lent, with an interactive discussion on the lessons we each can learn through Jesus’ parables.
