Lent is a time of repentance, fasting, and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection where Christian’s focus on their relationship with God, often choosing to give up something or to volunteer and give of themselves for others.
CHURCH-WIDE LENTEN STUDY
This February we begin a 40-day focus called “The Way” that will help our church grow deeper in it’s faith, learn more about the life of Christ, spend time daily reading and reflecting on the Word of God, and invite families to grow together in their faith. If you would like to purchase a copy of the book “The Way” or find a group study, contact Carlene Barbeau or stop by the church office during normal business hours.
LENT STUDY GROUPS
Don’t go on this journey alone. We have over 20 groups that will be studying the “The Way” together this Lent. A few of the groups are short-term studies just for Lent, but the most will continue after Easter. Please contact Carlene Barbeau if you have any trouble finding the group that is right for you.
