Return to the Lord your God, for God is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love; and the Lord relents over disaster.
"In a favorable time I listened to you, and in a day of salvation I have helped you." Behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
(2 Corinthians 6:2)
Lent is the season of our faith intent on reviving our attention to what we believe, where we might share our faith, how we practice our faith, and focus on serving others. We observe Lent in an attempt to activate our faith through the season as we prepare to celebrate the resurrection of Christ.
Your church is in deed hosting such excellent offerings for your Lenten journey in hopes that you spend this season activating YOUR faith, every day and in every way possible. This year, we’re getting our hands dirty, exercising our minds, and considering the temple of God that is our bodies… all to make way toward being the healthy Body of Christ!
Find YOUR passion for Christ and our faith this Lent! Get involved! Don’t miss out on this opportunity to become even more blessed by God’s presence in your life and the presence of our church.
