Lent Worship Series "Reflecting on Justice & Mercy"

Lent is a season of spiritual preparation leading up to Easter. It is the forty days before Easter, excluding Sundays. For centuries, the church has observed Lent as a special time of self-examination and penitence. 

This Lent (and Easter too) we will be not only growing in gratitude, but we will also explore how God’s grace and justice toward us is extended by believers toward other people—God’s children. These topics are worthy of discussion in our small groups as well.
