Lenten Small Groups

Lenten Small Groups

Congregational Book Study During Lent

During Lent, Redeemer encourages the entire congregation to read and discuss a book together in small groups. Traditionally, our Lenten groups meet at people’s homes or at the church.  In 2021, the groups met online via Zoom. To encourage discussion, Redeemer provides a study guide and small group leader guidance.  Lenten groups build relationships among members and friends that strengthen our community and deepen our faith.

2021 Lenten Book

The God Who Sees: Immigrants, the Bible, and the Journey to Belong

Raised a Catholic in Guatemala, the author Karen González writes about her baptism, communion, and confirmation in ways that are both relatable and eye-opening.  As a Christian with an eye for history, Scripture, and experience, González tells of her journey to the United States and speaks directly to immigration issues in a way that is insightful and compelling.

Meeting with my Lenten small group is my favorite activity of the year. I enjoy reading and talking about the book together. It’s also a great way to get to know new people better.
