Beginning in March, the Christian church enters the season of Lent. To prepare for the celebration of the Resurrection of Our Lord on Easter Sunday, we take a season of 40 days to focus on our need to repent of our sins and our need for a Savior from sin. This season of repentance and preparation is called Lent. The six weeks of theLenten season is a time to meditate deeply on the meaning of Christ’s suffering and death for our salvation as well as a time in which to concentrate on the continuing importance of amending our sinful lives.
During the season of Lent, we will have 2 special midweek services. The focus of the services these services will be on the Sacrament of Holy Baptism—its blessings, it’s connection to our daily life, and the comfort in brings in our daily repentance.
