Lent is the 40 days before Easter, beginning with Ash Wednesday. The season is one marked by repentance, humility, fasting and self-examination. We remember Jesus in the wilderness fasting; we remember the sins that led Jesus to the cross to die for us.
Lent culminates in Holy Week, beginning with Palm Sunday and Jesus' entrance into Jerusalem on a donkey. The final 3 days of Holy Week (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday) are when we remember the Passover meal He shared with His disciples, His suffering in the garden of Gethsemane, His betrayal, arrest, beating, crucifixion, and death, and—lastly—the silence that lingered the following day.
NEW TO THE CHRISTIAN CALENDAR?
If you're new to observing Christian Calendar (where we get seasons like Lent, Advent, and Ordinary Time), take a moment to learn about why we choose this rhythm.
Wednesdays through April 5 • 12–12:45PM • Gallery at the Park Church Building
Every Wednesday during Lent we will gather during the lunch hour to pray. Many are also fasting from food on Wednesdays, but please join us regardless.
