Season of Lent

Lent is a solemn religious observance that begins on Ash Wednesday and covers the nearly seven weeks (40 days, not counting Sundays) leading up to Easter. Lent is a time of preparation and reflection through prayer, self denial, and repentance

Meditations for Lent – Lenten Devotional
In these cautious times, we invite you to continue to journey through the season of Lent with us using Meditations for Lent as your guide. These weekly devotions have been thoughtfully and prayerfully written by our clergy and staff to foster a deeper understanding of this time of year. In addition to the meditations, there are daily readings. We encourage you to sit, pray, and reflect as we prepare our hearts for renewal in Christ Jesus. Booklets are available online through the link below and in the church office.
