Transformation through the Spiritual Practices
JOIN US in our all-church fast every Thursday during Lent as we seek God together as a church community.
Life is a continual change of “seasons.” Some are times of celebration and joy, while others are difficult and painful. The Christian life also has its seasons.
Lent is a season when we look inward at the state of our soul. We can choose to make more room for God by giving up something through the practice of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. These practices of self-denial give us purposeful time to pray, repent, and focus on gratitude.
The church observes the season of Lent beginning on Ash Wednesday and ending on Holy Saturday, the day before Easter. During this 40-day period we reflect on the life of Jesus Christ — particularly his temptation, struggle, suffering, crucifixion, and death.
