The 40 days of Lent that lead to Easter are the most sacred and spiritually powerful in the Christian calendar. From Ash Wednesday, through Good Friday, and on to Easter, Lent is a time when Christians are invited to examine their faith, and deepen the commitment to live the Christian life.
During this season of Lent, you are invited to join us in 40 days of prayer. Starting on Ash Wednesday, March 5, and running through Easter Sunday, April 20, we ask that all of the members of our congregation take some time each day to pray. You may make this part of your regular quiet time, or set aside another part of your day for these special prayers.
If you would like to pray along with other members of our congregation, please join us in the church Sanctuary. On Ash Wednesday, we will begin with a special evening prayer time during the Wednesday Bible Study.
For the remaining days of Lent, we will meet from 9am to 10am, Monday to Friday. To start we will light a candle and have an opening prayer. During the hour, you are welcome to come and leave at any time. Printouts of suggested prayers will be available.
It is our hope that this observance of Lent will give our members the opportunity to truly connect with God as we prepare to recognize the death and the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Please join us for prayer!
