Experience Lent With Us

We invite you to join with millions of believers around the globe as we observe a season called Lent. Lent is a time of focused repentance and reflection that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends right before Easter.


Almsgiving for Lent

Rebuild the Emmanuel Children’s Home With Us

Almsgiving is the act of giving to those in need as a tangible expression of Christian love. This year the focus of our giving is going to toward rebuilding the Emmanuel Children’s Home in Juarez, Mexico which was devastated by fire in late 2020.

Ash Wednesday Services, February 17

Ash Wednesday is the start of a season called Lent where followers of Christ intentionally refocus their hearts and minds on confession, forgiveness and reconciliation.  Our service included worship, teaching, the imposition of ashes, and was open to families with kids all ages.

Consider a Fast

We invite you to fast with us this Lent. We invite those who are able to fast from food from sunrise to sunset on Fridays during Lent. We also invite you to fast prior to communion on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.

Biblical fasting is focused. The focal point of this Lenten fast is reconciliation. Pray for our world, our nation, our communities, our church, and your relationships. Feel free to use a prayer like this:

“God, help me to understand more deeply the price that You paid to reconcile us to Yourself and what it means to be Your ambassador in this broken world.  Bring to mind the ways in which I’ve contributed to this brokenness and show me what repentance looks like.  I also lay my relationship with _____________ before You.  Reveal any actions that You would have me take and go before me in Jesus’ Name.”

We also encourage everyone to develop a media plan for your household. Prayerfully consider changing your Lenten media consumption in a manner that:

  1. Creates more time and space to reflect deeply on God’s Word
  2. Limits or eliminates content that isn’t God-honoring
  3. Limits or eliminates content that’s divisive in nature
