The season of Lent is an opportunity for us to grow deeper in our faith, both as individuals and as a community of believers. We hope you’ll join us in worship, reading, and reflection as we prepare ourselves for Easter.
 
Lent began as a season of preparation for baptism, the rite through which we receive the light of Christ and promise to walk as children of light. In Lent, we focus on living our baptismal promises more fully and intentionally.
