Lent Begins

Lent begins on February 26 and ends on Easter Sunday.

Lent is a season in the Church Calendar, beginning on Ash Wednesday and concluding with the celebration of Jesus’s resurrection on Easter Sunday, that offers opportunity for us to reorder our spiritual lives. Too easily we forget God as our Maker and Redeemer, replacing Him with things and ambition (Robert E. Webber). Lent is a time to return to the basics, to orient ourselves around the spiritual realities of life. Lent is a spiritual pilgrimage, a journey wherein we choose to die with Christ and be buried with Him, so we can be raised in the resurrection of new life.

Lenten Disciplines

As we prepare our hearts for Easter, we have provided a Lent Guide to help you journey through this season. The aim of this Guide is to help you develop or return to intentional spiritual rhythms as you prepare to celebrate Easter. Each week you’ll focus on developing in the disciplines of prayer, meditation, fasting and giving.

Lent Guide
Lent Guides will be available for you to pick up in the back of the Sanctuary on February 17. The Lent Guide is best enjoyed in its print form. However, if you would like a digital copy you can download each portion below.
