I sincerely appreciate this ministry. It provides a needed opportunity
to join in spiritual discussions with others.
– Sacred Time Lent 2022 participant
The season of Advent is a time of great excitement and anticipation in the Church. We are waiting for the coming of the promised Messiah! The One who will bring healing, justice, grace, and a new way of seeing and being in the world. The prophet Isaiah brings us a vision from God of this life with the Messiah. We invite you to come along on this journey through the season of Advent! Together in online small groups, we will reflect on how God has given us a vision that allows us to “Look Beyond” our current situation to a future with hope.
LEAD is excited to announce that Sacred Time Advent groups are back starting the week of November 28th. These groups meet online for the four weeks of Advent with LEAD Facilitators for one hour each week to discuss the assigned Advent texts from the book of Isaiah, share our own stories, and spend time in prayer.
