Beyond Sacrifice: From Lent to Launch

Lent is meant to be a season of preparation in which God prepares us through prayers/devotions, sacrificial giving, and fasting for greater works of ministry by revealing to us more of who God has made us to be, how much God loves us, and is for us, and the work God has for us.

Here are a few other ways you can participate in the Lenten Season. 

Fasting: Embrace the spirit of sacrifice this season through fasting. Consider giving up something meaningful, whether it's a specific food like chocolate or a behavior like social media, TV time, or gossip. Consult your healthcare professional before making any dietary changes.

Some also choose to do a Daniel Fast, inspired by Daniel, Meshach, Shadrach, and Abednego's fast in Babylon, involving abstaining from certain foods and incorporating prayers and devotions. It's a wonderful way to deepen your connection during this time."  For more on the Daniel Fast, go here: https://ultimatedanielfast.com/2024-daniel-fast/

Sacrificial Giving:  Go beyond your usual tithe and offering as a gesture of gratitude for Christ's sacrifice, and consider making a special offering.  Contributions will be collected on Easter Sunday in person, or you can consider giving online!

Give Online

During Lent, some choose to set aside a daily amount, while others save money by forgoing certain foods or activities to contribute. Your generous gift, whatever the amount, is truly appreciated and will support the church's ministries.

This year's Easter service will include Handel''s Hallelujah chorus. Music Director Kat Howerton would love for the congregation to be a part of this beautiful piece of music. She has created an audio recording for you to practice with. Click on the photo to listen and sing along!
