The Season of Lent | 2024

Lent is a forty-day season of repentance, prayer, and fasting that leads to Easter. Commemorating Christ’s temptation in the wilderness, we remember Christ’s sufferings and our sinfulness. Lent culminates in Holy Week-Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday before celebrating Christ’s resurrection on Easter.

We invite you to participate in Lent through our Ash Wednesday service, weekly prayer services, and Holy Week services.

Our Sermon Series

Noon Prayer Services

In these services, our hope is to practice the habits of prayer, fasting, and silence as we turn from our sin, deepen our understanding of our union with Christ and remember that our life comes through His death.

Childcare is available for children ages one through kindergarten.

  • Dates: Wednesdays, February 21 – March 20
  • Time: 12:00 PM

Weekly Service Guides

Each week we will post the service order and a playlist of songs from these services.
