Lent is a holy season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and continues through Palm Sunday and Holy Week, ending on Easter Sunday. The forty days represent the time Jesus spent in the wilderness enduring the temptation of Satan in preparation for His ministry, echoing the forty years the Israelites spent in the wilderness, and the forty days of rain during the Flood of Noah’s time.

Lenten Services: Every Wednesday Night during Lent we meet to worship at different UMC churches in our NW Mission Cluster. Join us at 7:00 pm each week for powerful worship and fellowship as we grow deeper together in the Lord. Please call the church offices or mark your Sunday contact card if you would like to carpool to the services.

Holy Week spans from Palm Sunday to Easter and encompasses the final week of Jesus’ earthly life culminating in His death (and the death of sin’s power over us) and our victory over death at His resurrection! This is a most holy time for Christians and we share it with you in the hope that you, too, will come to know and trust Jesus, the Savior of the World.
