Lent is the 40 days before Easter, not including Sundays.
It begins on Ash Wednesday, this year, March 1st.
Lenten Bible Reading

- Monday-Thursday: 8am-8pm
- Friday: 8am-5pm
- Saturday: 8am-2pm
WHAT CHRISTIANS BELIEVE AND WHY
During Lent, the church will be focusing on the new study by Adam Hamilton, Creed: What Christians Believe and Why; Exploring the Apostles’ Creed. This study explores what Christians believe, why they believe it and why it matters. This understanding helps Christians confront and examine their own core beliefs and bring new minute to the familiar words of the Apostles’ Creed.
Books will be available in the Atrium or are available online from Cokesbury. An e-reader version is available.
“I BELIEVE…” Lenten Dinners
The Lenten Dinners will return for 2017, focusing on “I Believe…” A variety of speakers will share their faith journey and how their beliefs have impacted their vocation, relationships and outlook on the world.
The dinners will be held on Thursdays starting on March 9. A light soup and salad dinner will be served at 6:00pm with the cost being covered by donations. At 6:30pm, the speaker for the evening will share their story, concluding at 7:15pm.
Sign-ups are requested so the appropriate amount of food is available. Sign up on the connect card at church or call the church office.
