There & Then

Lent goes back to the early days of the Church. The first official record we have of Lent is from a meeting of early church leaders called the Council of Nicaea. This meeting happened in 325 AD, and the early church leaders wanted to model the life of Jesus, and how he went 40 days & nights into the desert to fast, pray and prepare for his ministry, ultimately preparing himself to die on the cross.Lent became a season to set aside time to fully embrace Good Friday & Easter Sunday. It’s an opportunity to reflect on the sacred significance of what Jesus did for us on the Cross. Ultimately, the purpose of Lent doesn’t end with sadness and despair – it points us to the hope of the Resurrection.

Here & Now

We have a number of resources available to help you along your journey for Lent. Maybe you’ll start a bible reading plan, learn a new way of praying, read a book to encourage your spiritual journey, give something up, or maybe start something new. Let’s be unconventional in our pursuit of Jesus this season. Let’s see what God will do in our lives as we dedicate ourselves to His purposes, reaching His people, and building His kingdom of hope! Remember, following Jesus doesn’t make our lives easier, but it always makes our lives better.
