LENT RESOURCES

A focus on Jesus and the gospel creates community. Community develops in Lent through re-learning repentance, remembering the example and challenge of Jesus’ humility, embracing and acknowledging suffering, beginning the communal practice of lament, looking to the sacrifice of Jesus for our redemption, and experiencing the death and resurrection of Jesus. Lent and Easter turn our hearts upward but also place us on-mission in the city. This season will open your eyes to the people around you.

Why Celebrate Lent as a Community.png

Lent is a 40 day walk through daily and sometimes hourly reminders (because our tummies are hungry or our hearts are longing for something that we seemingly can’t live without) of the gospel. Lent, together with the celebration of Easter, focuses our lives on the wonderful love of God in the gospel.

The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ are at the very heart of Christianity. The good news of the gospel is that God has acted in history to conquer evil and reconcile sinners to himself through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Lent is first and foremost about the gospel making its way deeper into our lives. This six-week guide helps your community engage this gospel-rich season.
