The season of Lent is upon us! Lent is the season on the Christian calendar that begins with Ash Wednesday. It is the forty days before Easter (excluding Sundays) when Christians in various denominations spend time in prayer and fasting as we contemplate the sacrifice of Jesus, reflect on our own mortality, and draw closer to God in our daily lives.
As part of our Lenten journey this year, I invite you to join me in observing a holy Lent by participating in all or some of the following worship and prayer opportunities at New Covenant UMC.
