The fasting of Lent prepares us for the feast of Easter. In the 40 days of Lent, we prepare for death: death to living lives disconnected from LIFE – from God.
Below are several opportunities & resources available to our community throughout Lent.

February 18 through March 25, we'll be collecting food as we partner with Merrick Community Services to help them feed the hungry in our community.
During Lent, we give special attention to cultivating God's presence in our lives as we seek more prayerful lives. Below is a prayer guide that entrusts this work to the Psalms and the Lord's Prayer.
Ash Wednesday & Sundays in Lent
Ash Wednesday - February 14, 6:30pm*, we will gather with our friends at Awaken West 7th to remember: from dust we have come, and dust we will return. We will enter Lent mindful of mortality.
Each Sunday in Lent, we will tell the story of Jesus as He makes His way to the cross.
*no childcare provided for Ash Wednesday gathering.
