Maranatha Sunday School Lenten Lessons Coming Your Way Soon!


As you may recall, we had originally planned to have Joel Panciera present a 5-week series on Lent in Sunday School during March and April. This email is to let you know that (1) Joel has graciously offered to make his five-week series on Lent available on video through the Boston Avenue website, and (2) we have the opportunity to use the Maranatha Class blog to communicate the plans to our class members and to facilitate discussion.

Early this afternoon we sent out a communication that EvaMarie had sent to all of the classes regarding opportunities to participate remotely in Adult Ministries on a regular basis, especially during Lent and while the church is closed. The content of that message includes several different options, and an attached file explained how to install and use Zoom. I mention this because I can see that there will be some confusion from so many opportunities, but I don’t believe that it overlaps with what Joel described as a future virtual resource library, offering videos such as those he is self-producing for 2020 Lent. He delivered the first week’s lesson in person in the Maranatha classroom on March 1, so we have the audio recording that I can upload to the Sunday School section on (at

Joel has communicated with Caitlyn about making the videos available as soon as he can. He has likely completed and given her lessons 2 & 3 if not even more, and I understand that he would also like to present and record lesson 1 as a video so the series will be complete. He has also suggested a way to make the lessons more interactive, by collecting comments from the class and then responding by way of an e-mail message that we could send to our members and to our blog (joelpanciera.

As these recordings become available we will send out an email with a link to the videos and any special instructions that you might need to view them.
Thanks to Joel Panciera for making these videos and thanks to Barbara Meehan for coordinating with the church staff on Maranatha’s behalf.
