Lent lasts for 40 days and the first day is always Ash Wednesday. Thus, in order for Lent to include 40 days on which fasting could occur, it had to be expanded to six full weeks (with six days of fasting in each week) plus four extra days—Ash Wednesday and the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday that follow it. Six times six is thirty-six, plus four equals forty. And that's how we arrive at the 40 days of Lent!

This Wednesday, March 6th, all throughout the world Christians will be entering into Lent on a day called “Ash Wednesday.” So, we want to invite you to join us this Wednesday at 7pm four our Ash Wednesday Service. Together we can prepare our hearts with worship and reflection. We’ll meet in the auditorium and through worship and prayer we will reflect on the upcoming Easter season, contemplate the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, and then consider how we can repent of any sins that keep us from giving our heart, soul, mind, and strength to God.
During the 40 days of Lent, we will be posting resources and opportunities to engage the season that culminates in a celebration of the resurrection of our Savior. Please feel free to download and share any of the resources you find here.
