WHAT IS LENT AND WHY DOES IT LAST FORTY DAYS? 

Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. Lent comes from the Anglo Saxon word lencten, which means "spring." The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan and preparing to begin his ministry. 

Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection. In the early church, Lent was a time to prepare new converts for baptism. Today, Christians focus on their relationship with God, often choosing to give up something or to volunteer and give of themselves for others. 

 

SAVE THE DATE 

Due to the overwhelming response, Pastor Armstead will share his presentation, “Pastor’s Vision for the Church and Ministry Leaders’”, from the Annual Ministry Leaders Seminar, on the 5th Sunday, March 31st. This will take place during the Joint Sunday School class 10:00am—10:45am; location: TBD
