Hixson UMC Hosts Vespers Every Wednesday During Lent

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Hixson United Methodist Church, 5301 Old Hixson Pike, will host a special Lenten worship series called "Vespers." Services will be Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. during Lent (through April 9) in the chapel. Dessert and coffee follow in the Fellowship Hall. "Vespers" is an evening worship setting in which we quiet ourselves in order to open our souls to the ministry of God within. It is an opportunity to be still in the midst of busyness, and to hear the voice of God with our hearts.

A short-term class, based on the book, "When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor.

..And Yourself" by Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert will start this Sunday at 9:45 a.m. in Fellowship Hall, with Jenny Hill; or Wednesday nights at 6:30 p.m. in the conference room with Rev. Paul Longmire, 762-6099 or email Paul.

Love and Respect will be held March 30-May 11 from 5-7 p.m. in the Parlor. Each session begins with a 10-20 minute overview of the concept, followed by a short discussion time. Childcare will be provided. Class is limited to 20 people. Cost is $10/person or $18/couple. If you have any questions or would like more information, please feel free to call Jeff at 362-2670 or Carmen at 760-9598.
