Lent 2021 – February 17 to April 3

“Lent” is the period of 40 days that leads up to Easter (it excludes Sundays).  It is a time of preparation through personal confession, repentance and prayer.  It is reminiscent of the 40 days that Jesus spent in the wilderness before he started his public ministry.  During this time we seek to set aside the distractions of normal “worldly” life and focus on God.  Traditionally, many people give something up for Lent which helps them to sense their longing for God.  It is also a time of giving, praying, and fasting in secret.

We invite you to fast in any way that seems best for you from sunrise to sunset each Friday during Lent.  Use this time to seek the Lord and draw close to God.

This year we are encouraging you to read through the Book of Psalms as a part of your daily devotions.  We have provided a
“Daily Devotional Guide” for you to use (HERE) and hope that you will find this helpful in your spiritual journey through Lent.
The United Methodist Church’s Rethink Church program has also provided four ways you might way to use in observing Lent.  So, check out these four ways to “enter the wilderness” this Lenten season.
