Sign up now for the Women's Retreat and get away from the busyness of life for a weekend of relaxation and restoration at Pilgrim Pines in Swanzey, NH.
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and is 40 days (excluding Sundays) leading up to Easter. It is a season marked by waiting, fasting, repentance, returning, renewing and preparation. The anceint Israelites spent 40 years in the wilderness to be disciplined and prepared by God for the promised land. Jesus spent 40 days in the wilderness to prepare himself for ministry. This year we invite you to embark on a Lenten Journey that seeks to draw us nearer to God and be prepared to not only celebrate His resurrection on Easter but then to go forth from there better prepared for whatever ministry He has called us to.
Each of us will take a different path along this Lenten Journey so there is no one resource or guide that we can offer that will fit for everyone but below is at least a suggestion to help you along the way.
Overall, the Lenten Journey is a personal, individual journey. It begins on Ash Wednesday where we'll meet together and be sent off but, along the way, think of each Sunday service as a "pit stop" of sorts where we gather again to rest, fellowship, worship together and be realigned to the purpose of our journey. Then during Holy Week, there are several "sites" to check out to prepare us for a great Easter celebration and conclusion to the journey.
You will find a list of valuable resources for your Lenten Journey here.
