Journey through Lent

The Journey through Lent is a journey with Jesus.

We are invited to walk in the way of love, turning our hearts and lives back to God and inviting God to transform and renew us.


As we move through the Lenten season, we invite you to join us in worship and Lenten gatherings or in finding your own way to draw near to God in prayer and community.

The Season of Lent

We are in the season of Lent (from an Old English word meaning “spring,” the time of lengthening days).


Lent is the season of preparation as we journey with Jesus toward the cross and prepare for his death and resurrection.


This is a time to lay bare all that separates us from God and one another.


Traditionally, Christians commit to devotional practices, engaging in self-examination, prayer, fasting and meditating on God’s word as we seek transformation.


The season of Lent is an invitation to change our hearts and our ways, and to participate in God’s work of redemption.


We are called to respond afresh to God’s presence in our lives and in our world.


We seek to place our needs, our fears, our failures, our hopes, our very lives in God’s hands, allowing God’s transforming grace to renew us once more.

Good Friday

Holy Week is the most solemn and sacred time of the Christian year, when we are invited by our liturgical tradition to contemplate the events leading up to Jesus' crucifixion, death and resurrection.


We are also invited to take these ancient liturgies into our own hearts and consider what they might mean for us in this moment, opening ourselves to the possibility of grace and transformation.

We will hear about Jesus' final days in Jerusalem, the story of his Last Supper with friends and his Passion and death on the cross.


As we experience his love and commitment to being with us even unto the point of death, we remember that we are not alone. Jesus is with us even now.
