Lenten & Easter Schedule

 Lenten Schedule 2022

Worship with Us!


The season of Lent is a time for personal reflection, repentance, and growth. It is a season where we focus upon prayer, fasting, and works of love as expressions of our faith. A season of renewal and grace, restoring right relationships, letting God lead, and the light shine out of the darkness as we journey to the cross. While a solemn season of penitence and reflection, Lent is a 40-day season (not counting Sundays) marked by repentance, fasting, and reflection that ultimately lead to celebration. This Lent we will focus on Jesus’ journey to Jerusalem.

 Try following this Daily Activities Calendar for Lent throughout this Lenten season.
