Lent & Easter


Lent & Easter

Lent is the 40 days (not counting Sundays) between Ash Wednesday and Easter and our celebration of the resurrection of Christ. This season provides an opportunity for preparation, study, and meditation on Jesus’ final days and the meaning of his ministry – then and now. Jesus challenged the powers of his day with God’s eternal love for the world and God’s people. As “Easter People” we celebrate the resurrection, and we remember all that led to it.

We invite you to the Lenten opportunities listed below.
