LENT 2021

Resources to Enrich Your Lenten Journey

Lent 2021 is the forty day season of the church year leading up to Easter. Beginning with Ash Wednesday (February 17), followers of Jesus use this time of preparation to pray, repent, worship, serve, and reflect on all that Christ has done on our behalf. Lent concludes with Palm Sunday and our Holy Week Observances (March 28 to April 4). Easter joy and victory is ours because of Jesus’ life and suffering, death and resurrection on our behalf. We pray that the resources found on this page will enrich your Lenten journey.

Follow different events during the Passion, specifically focusing on the people that followed Christ, to see how God calls His people to return to Him this Lenten season.
