Narative Lectionary February and March 2019

The narrative lectionary respects the traditional Christian church year, with its principal seasons — Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost. It also respects the rhythms of the school year. We will spend January-April immersed in the gospel of Matthew. These same texts will be used in Preschool, Elementary, and Middle School Sunday School classes.
