The Devil's Playbook AdvertThis Wednesday night, March 12, Fr. Looker will begin Church of the Messiah’s new teaching series, “A Peek Inside the Devil’s Playbook”: A Lenten Bible Study Based on The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis.  Each week, Fr. Looker will discuss six of the thirty-one letters the veteran demon Screwtape wrote to his novice tempter nephew Wormwood on how to better damn souls to Hell in the C. S. Lewis masterpiece of Christian spirituality.  By looking at the advice devil’s give on how to lure souls into damnation, Christians can compare that advice to Holy Scripture and see how to avoid the pitfalls altogether.  While a copy of The Screwtape Letters will enhance your experience, it is by no means required to participated in the Bible study and we encourage everyone to attend whether they have a copy or have read the letters for the week or not.

As part of Church of the Messiah’s regular Wednesday night service, the evening will begin with a time of praise and worship, followed by the Bible Study, and will conclude with a time of intercessory prayer.  Childcare is provided during our mid-week services.  We are always mindful to end the services before 8:30 so that everyone can be home in time to prepare for work and school the following day.  Be sure to make Wednesday nights at Church of the Messiah part of your Lenten discipline for the next five weeks and we will see you on Wednesday nights!
