ST. CHRISTOPHER ADULT FAITH FORMATION | Lenten Scripture Study
During Lent, we strive to free ourselves from all kinds of clutter—material and spiritual—in order to focus on God and turn back to him with our whole hearts. If this “turning back” is genuine, it will be a reorientation, a transformation. To help us enter into this season, participants will explore three key moments in the life and ministry of Jesus. The result will be a better understanding of the authentic transformation that God calls each of us to embrace as individuals and as a community and a renewed desire to live God’s own outward-looking, self-emptying, laying-down-one’s-life kind of love.
Join fellow parishioners for an online, 4-week scripture series during Lent. This series will include opportunities to reflect on and share how God is calling each of us to renewal and transformation.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Will there be an in-person option?
Unfortunately, no. The local attendance restrictions because of the coronavirus pandemic prevent us from meeting in person.
I have access to the Internet, but I’ve never used Zoom before. What do I do? How does it work?
Zoom is an online platform for gathering people together from their own homes using their computers or iPhones or Androids. You will need your own subscription to access Zoom. Go to the Zoom website www.zoom.us and sign up. There are two options: free service or paid subscription. You don’t need a paid subscription to join in our online scripture study. Zoom provides on their website video tutorials on how to use it. Additionally, at our first gathering for the scripture study, we will go over some basics of using Zoom for new users.
Once you’ve registered for our scripture study, we will send you an email with a Zoom link. You can click on the link right from that email and it will take you to the Zoom “waiting room.” From there the host will admit you into the Zoom room.
I have no access to the Internet. Can I still participate?
Yes. There is a “phone-in” option with Zoom. You’ll be able to participate in the Zoom sessions by phone. When you register, we’ll send you a special phone number along with a passcode that will patch you into the Zoom sessions.
Will the Zoom session be recorded for viewing at a later date?
No. Because this scripture study includes opportunities for faith-sharing, which can be a personal matter for many, participants can be assured that their privacy will be respected.
Must I register for the series, or can I purchase and read the book on my own?
No, you don’t need to register for the series if you just want to do your own self-study. You can purchase a copy of the book here: https://littlerockscripture.org/Products/4509/Lent-Season-of-Transformation or by phone: 1-800-858-5434. Please note: eBooks cannot be purchased over the phone. You must order eBooks online and pay with a valid credit card.
