Season of Lent

The Season of Lent is a time of self-reflection in light of the suffering and death of Jesus, who was crucified as the payment for our sin.  Lent begins on Ash Wednesday (Feb. 26, 2020), covers a period of 40 days, and ends on Maundy Thursday (Apr. 9, 2020). 

Please consider joining us on the Lenten journey as we ponder what Jesus did for us and our salvation.
Jesus, I Will Ponder Now
1. Jesus, I will ponder now On Thy holy Passion;
With Thy Spirit me endow For such meditation.
Grant that I in love and faith May the image cherish
Of Thy suffering, pain, and death, That I may not perish.
2. Make me see Thy great distress, Anguish, and affliction,
Bonds and stripes and wretchedness And Thy crucifixion;
Make me see how scourge and rod, Spear and nails, did wound Thee,
How for man Thou diedst, O God, Who with thorns had crowned Thee.
5. If my sins give me alarm And my conscience grieve me,
Let Thy cross my fear disarm, Peace of conscience give me.
Grant that I may trust in Thee And Thy holy Passion.
If His Son so loveth me, God must have compassion.
