The Lectionary Group is a wonderful way to add to your Sunday worship experience. We pray the Collect together, read the lessons aloud, and then discuss their context and meaning – to us as individuals and as a community of faith. We meet on Sunday mornings at 9:15 am in the conference room next to the Lillycrop Room, so you can get some coffee, a pastry, and come and join in the discussion. The Lectionary Discussion Group will start up for the Fall 2014 season on Sunday, September 7th at 9:15 a.m. Hope to see you there!
