Lent is an invitation for followers of Jesus to walk alongside Jesus in the desert for the 40 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter, where we search our hearts for the depths of our sin and remember and experience the heights of God’s love.
During Lent, the people of God participate individually and corporately in practices that deepen our dependency on God, expand our humility of self, and grow our expectancy of His Spirit. We bring ourselves low, temporarily shedding parts of our life for the sake of Christ in the hope that we will find more of him. We achieve this through spiritual disciplines (addition), fasting (subtraction), and repentance (introspection). We are not meant to do this alone! As you engage in these Lenten disciplines, bring in others around you for support and accountability.
Our Lenten Guide will provide you with some ideas and direction to participate in the Lenten season. We also hope you find the Lenten materials listed below helpful during this season.
We pray that the Lord would meet you in powerful and unique ways, and that as you walk with Jesus in the desert, you remember that his spirit is never far and his grace is never-ending.
