Lenten Resources from Pastor Charlie

“For Christians, Lent marks and intentional time of self-reflection and repentance. It is a time to lay distractions aside, to move beyond tepid faith and the accommodations made to self-focused secular values. Christians choose to fast, or lay aside, daily activities or habits practiced most of the year so that we may be more fully focused and engaged in following Jesus in authentic discipleship”
