Season of Lent at FPC


Season of Lent at FPC


The forty days leading to Easter Sunday provide 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.
