Lent 2018

Throughout the centuries, the Church has set aside the 40 days from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday as a time of intentional prayer & fasting, as we journey with Christ toward the cross. This journey is not meant to be traversed alone, but together. Throughout these 40 days, let us be intentional about gathering with one another to pray for our church, our neighbors, the hurting, the lost, the broken, and for our world.
