2022 Lenten Resources

Lenten Resources to Enrich Your Journey

Lent 2022 is the forty day season of the church year leading up to Easter. Beginning with Ash Wednesday (March 2), 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 10 to 17). 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.

Witnesses to Christ: People from His Passion

This year’s Lent 2022 series paints a stunning portrait of Jesus through the eyes of those whose interactions with Jesus lead us to meditate on His Passion as recorded by St. John in his Gospel. Our overall theme is “Witnesses to Christ: People From His Passion.”

John tells us why he wrote his Gospel: 

Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.”

John 20:30–31

Life! When we believe that Jesus is the Christ, God gives us life—abundant life, forgiven life, and eternal life. 

Historically, the Fourth Gospel is likened to an eagle—an image that suggests John soars to heights of glory and grandeur. That’s because the evangelist paints a stunning portrait of Jesus, who is the bread of life, the resurrection and the life, and the way, the truth, and the life. Life in Jesus. That’s God’s gift to you!

During Lent 2022, our life in Christ will be strengthened as we hear the witness of those in John’s Gospel who journeyed to the cross. Along the way, we’ll meet villains, such as Barabbas and Pontius Pilate, as well as sinners, such as Peter (who denied Jesus three times), Mary Magdalene (who was possessed by seven demons), and Judas Iscariot (who betrayed Jesus for thirty pieces of silver).

Please join us for worship at each Lenten Service as we hear the witness of these people in John’s Gospel:

  • Ash Wednesday, March 2: John the Baptist, John 1:29–34
  • Midweek of Lent 1, March 9: Mary, the Sister of Lazarus and Martha, John 12:1–11
