View/download the 2020 Lent Devotional [pdf] >
Throughout Holy Week, we want to continue to connect with God and one another. One way we might engage this last week of Lent is to color some beautiful artwork from Illustrated Children’s Ministry. The Seven Last Words of Jesus from the cross are an important part of many Good Friday worship services. The two PDF documents will be available soon.
Faith Practices for the Journey
Lent is a time to be intentional about growing our life with God, and like any kind of growth, that takes new habits and practice with others. Each week of Lent, we will look at one kind of spiritual practice, each of which might have many different ways to exercise: Worship and Prayer, Study, Giving, Serving, and Sharing. These align with our membership vows where we commit to one another our “prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.” The Scriptures we are reflecting on each week, both at home in this devotional and on Sunday morning, are examples of the ways Jesus shared and taught these spiritual practices during Holy Week, the days leading up to his crucifixion and resurrection.
