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.

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. Sundays in Lent are not counted in the forty days because each Sunday represents a “mini-Easter” and the reverent spirit of Lent is tempered with joyful anticipation of the Resurrection. 

Ash Wednesday service Wed 13 Feb 7 PM. Palm Sunday March 24th 1030. Stations of the Cross Good Friday March 29th about sunset 7 PM. Easter Sunrise and Easter Communion Service Sunday March 31st 6:30 AM and 1030 AM.

Team Matt and Team Tracey

If you would like to be on the team to help Matt and Tracey then let Don Schone or Carol Bell know of your desire and how you can possibly help. Or just make yourself available as needs are determined. Being on one or both teams will strengthen your soul and you will be blessed and you will be a blessing too. We are truly a church family and this is what family does. Thank you in advance.
