Lent For Lunch

The traditional purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer for the commemoration of Holy Week, marking the death and resurrection of Jesus, which recalls the events of the Passion of Christ on Good Friday. It culminates in the celebration on Easter Sunday of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

During Lent, many of the faithful commit to fasting or giving up certain types of luxuries as a form of penitence. But Lent is really about what we as Christians take on, not what we temporarily give up. Lent lasts for forty days, from Ash Wednesday until Easter. But Sundays are excluded it is a 46 day period.

Please join us for a special study of Lent at noon on Wednesdays, beginning February 20 and lasting for 5 weeks. A soup lunch will be provided.

Pastor Jennifer Emert will lead the sessions based on her published book, Letters From Lent. This is a wonderful opportunity for fellowship and the chance to understand the true meaning of Lent.

Everyone is welcomed to attend, no prior knowledge of Lent is required.
