Lent is a season of spiritual discipline. Traditionally, that means we give something up for 40 days. Maybe we give up chocolate, or soda, or gossip! Sometimes, for 40 days, we add something new, like prayer, Bible study, or acts of service and giving. Through these disciplines, we hope to grow and prepare ourselves for Easter.
But this year seems different. 2020 forced us to give things up things we never could have imagined and take on new things like never before. We have spent a year sacrificing for each other. We have sometimes felt separate, stretched thin, searching for hope.
This year for Lent, we need a little grace. Grace to hope, to pray, to forgive, to love, to grieve, and to rejoice. It is important in this season that we remember that we can be tired but still have hope. We can grieve and still have faith. God gives us that grace, and we will spend this Lenten season sharing that grace with each other.
Below, you’ll find ways to begin this holy season together. Come to our activities, hear our new devotionals, worship with us as we prepare for the Resurrection. I hope you join us in new ways as we seek and embody grace.

Lenten Devotionals With Pastor James
Daily Devotionals from Pastor James
Every day, Pastor James offers a new thought, prayer, and scripture reading to meditate upon as we make our way through the season of Lent.
Since we can’t do our regular egg hunt, we’re bringing the hunt to you! There are several ways to participate (you can do all of them). We need helpers to stuff eggs, helpers to go “egg” houses, and houses to “egg”!!
