The Lenten Season Begins
“Naked Faith: Revealing Resurrection”
Lent is the season of the Christian church when followers of Christ are preparing for Holy Week and Easter. It is a time when many Christians seek to experience Jesus by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation. and spiritual discipline. The purpose is to set aside time for reflection on Jesus Christ - his suffering and his sacrifice, his life, death, burial, and resurrection.
In the Western world, Ash Wednesday marks the first day, or the start of the season of Lent, which begins 40 days prior to Easter. (Sundays are not included in the 40-day count).
You are invited to join us this Wednesday, March 1, 2017 at 7 pm for our annual Ash Wednesday Service. The service will include the Imposition of Ashes and Holy Communion.
And you are invited to join us on Sundays and Wednesdays as we journey together through this Lenten Season.
