Journey to the Cross is a transformational journey of prayer and meditation on Christ’s sacrifice from the time he was condemned to his burial. Stations are composed of thematic artwork on easels and physical symbolic objects accompanied with instructional booklets to explain the journey. Each station has four parts for reflection that include: scriptures that describes the scene, prayer, silent reflection and contemplation, your response in a personal prayer. There is no time limit, but on average it takes 30-60 minutes.

Be the Bridge—Pursuing God’s Heart for Racial Reconciliation Book Study
The Micah Workers (MW) team is offering a book study of Be the Bridge by Latasha Morrison. This is the book that inspired the formation of the MW group. One of the MW objectives is to create a desire to deepen our knowledge (re: racial justice) and appreciate the impact we have on others. This book did it for us, and we hope it will be the beginning of your transformation too. The study will be virtual, on Zoom, and will span six consecutive Tuesdays from 6:30 to 8:00 PM starting on April 11 and ending May 16. The study will include prayers, discussion questions, and other resources to enhance group engagement. Be the Bridge presents a compelling vision of what it means for every follower of Jesus to become a bridge builder—committed to pursuing justice and racial unity in light of the gospel. You can purchase the book on Amazon or from the book provider of your choice. Visit https://bit.ly/3yg3B3w to register for the study. *The mission of the FUMC Georgetown Micah Workers is to provide scriptural and historical education about racial justice, and to inspire and encourage involvement in creating God’s beloved community.

Thirty minutes long with scripture reading, a few questions, and opening and closing prayer
