Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on the
Saturday before Easter. Lent lasts forty days, not counting Sundays.
Sundays aren't counted because Sunday always celebrates Jesus' victory
over sin and death .
The color of Lent is purple, a royal color tha signifies penitence and preparation.
Lenten services are offered each Wednesday evening at 6:30 PM. They
include various messages, prayers and music. In the past, we have
enjoyed the musical performances of "The Deacons" should
you wish to hear their music come and visit our library and borrow
their CD. This year we presenting personal testamonies that identify
GODs influance upon our lives.
