Season of Lent

Published: 2024-02-12

February 14, Ash Wednesday, was the beginning of the 6-week Season of Lent. Our Ash Wednesday service will included time to make a Lent Commitment, with ways to Fast and Feast, please join us in making a commitment during this season. The Season of Lent is a time for spiritual growth in Christ. The Latin word “Lent” means “lengthen,” as in the lengthening of daylight and budding of new growth. During this six-week season we allow God to prune away branches in our lives that are not bearing fruit. We do this through such spiritual disciplines as fasting, silence, solitude, confession, and unplugging. We also allow God to plant into our lives new ways of spiritual growth that will bear much fruit for the glory of God. We do this through such spiritual disciplines as sabbath-keeping, journaling, meditation on God’s Word, memorizing Scripture, and prayer. May the Lord of the Harvest bless you as we enter together into this upcoming season of spiritual renewal and growing in Christ together.
