Lent 2011

40 days of renewal
March 13 – April 24, 2011

The season of Lent is a traditional period of reflection and preparation for Easter. During this series, we will study scriptural passages appropriate to the season. Additionally, each Sunday we will discuss a classical spiritual discipline that will give you a new way to connect with God during the week.
