Lent

Lent includes 46 days leading up to Easter. Traditionally, we refer to it as the 40 days leading up to Easter because Sundays are not included in the count.  Sundays are not included because the day has long been considered the day of resurrection, which is why we worship on Sundays.
The season of Lent is about practicing disciplines that further align us with the will of God. These disciplines lead us to a deeper belief in Jesus Christ. It is by belief that we are born again in the kingdom of God.  To be born again is desire Christ more and more and nothing else leading us once again to the practice of spiritual disciplines. To learn more about the season of Lent, visit the UMC resources.

During the season of Lent, we invite our members and guests to bring to worship new stuffed small (6″-12″) children’s toys to leave in the pews through Palm Sunday, March 25.  After that date, they’ll be gathered and delivered to hospitalized children.
