Lord, how good it is for us to be here -- Matthew 17

Lent and Easter

Here you will find the schedule of events and enlightening material to help you journey through Lent and prepare for the joy of Easter.

Growing the Branches by Seeking Jesus is our 2024 Lenten theme. 

Just as branches flourish when rooted in fertile soil, we too can thrive and bear fruit by nurturing our relationship with our Lord and Savior.  Let this season be a time of intentional seeking, a time to delve into the teachings of Jesus, and a time to cultivate the seed of faith within our hearts.

May this help you walk with Jesus through Lent, Holy Week, and to the joy of Easter?  May our God bring all of us the joy and hope of Easter!
