KiNDRED | Lent 2017
Traditionally, Lent is a season of introspection, humility, and repentance. It's a time when we intentionally invite God to heal, transform and redeem the broken parts of our personal and corporate lives. Join us this Lent as we take this ancient posture and ask God to do a new thing in our city. In small groups and as a larger church family we will meet Jesus and we will meet new friends. Join us as we discover what it means to be the multi-ethnic family of God, both within UPC and in partnership with other Seattle churches.

HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?
KiNDRED Small Groups: 3/1 - 4/16
Our small groups are for equipping the family. We’ll engage the scriptures and help each other identify a practice we call a “personal challenge” for the week. In this way we begin the work of together engaging in the challenging, but beautiful work of multi-ethnic community.
See below to sign up for a small group, find the Lent Study Guide and Study Guide Videos. If you're a group facilitator, find training resources below.
KiNDRED Worship Celebrations
Join us for a time of family celebration. We’ll celebrate the one who makes multi-ethnic family a reality and celebrate the steps we take to participate in that reality. See below for a variety of exciting upcoming opportunities.
KiNDRED Gatherings: 4/21 - 5/14
Following Easter Sunday, we will continue the work of KiNDRED by expanding our small groups outside of the UPC community. A Kindred Gathering is a family get-together between your small group and a few people of a different ethnicity (and maybe a different church). This is a time to break bread and build relationships with new friends. More information to come.
