Our church wide Lenten study is an important part of our church life.
Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan and preparing to begin his ministry.
Lent, the period of 40 days before Easter (excluding Sundays), begins on Ash Wednesday and ends at sundown on Holy Saturday, the evening before Easter. Sundays in Lent are not counted in the forty days because each Sunday represents a “mini-Easter” and the reverent spirit of Lent is tempered with joyful anticipation of the Resurrection.
During Lent, we enter into a season of preparation, self-reflection, and repentance and focus on God in preparation for the coming of Easter. Christians focus on their relationship with God, often choosing to give up something or to volunteer and give of themselves for others.
Groups meet either at Trinity or at an off site location hosted by a member.
