What is Lent:

Lent is the forty-days (not counting Sundays) stretching from Ash Wednesday to Resurrection Sunday (Easter). It is a time in the life of church where we focus on both preparation and repentance.

 

What is the Road the Calvary Fast?

This year as we look to Recommit, Refocus, and Rejoice, Lent is a excellent time for us as a congregation to refocus on the things that truly matter in the life of a disciple. We will spend the next 40 days reading and reflecting on scripture, in intentional prayer, and sacrificial fasting.
