Ash Wednesday through Easter 2022

Lent is a season in the church year that begins with Ash Wednesday (March 2) and lasts forty days, not including Sundays.  The name has Germanic roots and means “long” or “to lengthen,” which reflects the lengthening of days in the spring. Lent was traditionally a time of preparation, fasting, and praying for those who were to be baptized at Easter.  Today it is time of repentance, reflection, and renewed attention as we prepare ourselves for Easter.  This year our Lenten worship series, “You Are Here,” will lead us in exploring God’s presence right where we are.
