Ash Wednesday and Lent

Today is Ash Wednesday and this marks the beginning of Lent.  Lent is the 40 days of preparation for Easter. This time has been remembered by Christians for centuries.  It is often a time of fasting and remembrance where we can grow closer to God.  Some people give up things like chocolate or fast food.  This year I want you to think about taking something on instead of giving something up.

I plan to take on a dedicated time of 10 minutes of prayer each day.  Too often my daily prayer time is quick and just something I get done.  This season I want to make sure I spend dedicated time with God each day.  What do you plan to do?  Share on our Facebook post so we can help each other stay accountable as a community.  Use this season to grow in your faith and grow in your understanding of who God is.  

Grace and Peace,

Join us for a special Ash Wednesday Worship to kick off Lent tonight at 7 pm in the main sanctuary.  All are welcome!
