The season of Lent begins this Wednesday, March 6 with Ash Wednesday. We take time during the six weeks between Ash Wednesday and Easter to reflect on our journey with Christ, often with a repentant heart. Many people choose something to take away (fast) and/or something to add as a way of helping them focus on Christ, imitate Christ’s time in the wilderness and sacrifices for us, and to grow with God.
There are many ways to connect with the community of grace at First Baptist during this season. Our Ash Wednesday service will include the imposition of ashes but will also help us grow together through active stations that explore the story of Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness.
We also have resources for families of all ages and sizes, to help guide us in prayer together each week of Lent. There’s a weekly devotion and activity focused on one part of the Lord’s Prayer. We will have printed versions available on Wednesday and in our worship carts.
