Lent & Easter Worship & Events

Lenten Season at Friendship Celebration 2019  

The season of Lent is a time when the church reflects upon the suffering and salvation accomplished by our Lord and Savior.  Because of the cross, we have great consolation knowing our sins are forgiven.  Lent is also a call to personal repentance and a time to recommit ourselves as followers of Jesus. 

 As part of our Lenten journey this year, we will focus on certain questions that Jesus asks. There are hundreds of questions to consider—some are more significant than others.  Some questions Jesus definitively answered Himself.  Answers to other questions are more elusive or open-ended.  Yet, the question is always worth considering.  Often Jesus precedes new teaching with a question as a way of opening up the heart.

 You are invited to take part in special worship opportunities throughout Lent and Holy Week.

 Through this season of Lent, it is our prayer that the ministry efforts of our church would be used by the Holy Spirit to change hearts, deepen love, and strengthen faith in Jesus.  Thinking and acting anew is a sign we have heard the question and received the answer. If you have needs or questions of any kind, please contact Pastor Matt, Pastor Tom, or contact the church office and we will put you in touch with one of the Elders.
