Preparing for Lent in 2018

What is Lent? Lent is the church season that begins on Ash Wednesday and lasts until Easter. It is a solemn season of repentance, fasting, self-examination, and preparation for the celebration of Easter. It is a time that we are mindful of our human tenancy to sin and our need for forgiveness and God'sredeeming grace. The forty days of Lent remind us of the 40 days that Jesus spent in the desert being tempted by Satan, and the 40 days that it rained over Noah's ark.  Forty days is a symbol of waiting and preparation that brings us out of the trials and carry us into a time of a new beginning.  The Lenten season closes with the celebration of Easter that proclaims God's promise of eternal life through Jesus Christ.

During the week, we will be using a 40 day prayer guide to help us walk the path together.  On Sundays during Lent, each Sunday is set aside as a “little Easter” where we focus on God's promise of resurrection for all who believe.  Please join us as we pray, meditate and celebrate together.
