Lent is a time of repentance, fasting, and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection. Join us as we journey together through this season and use these opportunities to reflect and renew.
Meditations for Lent 2022: The Stephen Ministry’s annual Lenten devotional book is now available! Limited printed copies are available at each service and at the front desk.
2022 Children’s Lenten Prayer Calendar: The 2022 Children’s Lenten Prayer Calendar for children is also available now. Pick up your copy outside the Children’s Ministries office or click below to print one at home.
Lenten Small Groups
Study with Lenten Small Groups, now-April 14: We will study Dr. Howell’s book, Unrevealed Until Its Season, reflecting on hymns and exploring life-giving themes as we approach Easter. As Dr. Howell writes, “Hymns embed faith into the marrow of the soul more vividly than words merely spoken or read.” Take this opportunity to learn, grow, and connect with one another, as we grow closer in love with God. Review the schedule for online or in-person options, including a group offered by the Western North Carolina Conference, and plan to join us!
Ready. Set. Pray.
Ready. Set. Pray. will use Kate Bowler’s Good Enough devotional
throughout Lent. Join this group each morning as a Lenten practice.
Led by our clergy and staff, this time of grounding ourselves in our faith is every Monday through Friday, beginning at 8:30 a.m. These gatherings are only 10-15 minutes long and are a great way to begin your day!
