Our faith is full of heroes who experienced God powerfully in solitude. Heidi Haverkamp, author of this year's Lenten study, Holy Solitude, offers their inspiring stories, thoughtful daily reflections, and practical spiritual disciplines to discover how time apart can open our eyes, ears, minds, and hearts to the still, small voice of God—and transform us for a life of faith and service. 

Lenten small groups will meet once a week for eight weeks, starting the week of February 24. Groups will read and discuss the book, Holy Solitude. Books can be purchased at church for $10.

Sign up in the narthex or online for the small group of your choice, based on time or other preferences. 

Lent at First has always been a great way to get to know others, come closer to God and learn something new. Join a small group this year so that you may be fully prepared to receive the gift of Easter!
