Lent Devotion Guide

The cross is so familiar yet so foreign, and as symbols become familiar, their meaning fades. The Cross: Lent Devotion Guide will take you through 40 days of slowing down to pause, consider, and reflect on that cross and the person who hung on it. As we grow in the understanding of the Crucifixion, our understanding of the depth and length of God's love will likewise move. Start at anytime.

What is Lent?

The season of Lent is a time of prayer, fasting, and self-examination in preparation for the celebration of the resurrection of the Lord at Easter. It is a period of 40 days. In the early church, Lent was a time of preparation for the celebration of baptism at the Easter Vigil.

What is Ash Wednesday?

Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent, reminds us that unless we are willing to die to our old selves, we cannot be raised to new life with Christ. The first step of this journey calls us to confession and examination of our lives in light of God's grace. As a sign of transformation, you are invited to come forward to receive the imposition of ashes where the sign of the cross will be traced on your forehead. 


What is Palm Sunday?

Palm Sunday begins Holy Week, a time in the church year when we remember how Christ gave his life in love for the world. We celebrate Palm Sunday by waving palms, echoing the day Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey, fulfilling Old Testament prophecies.

What is Maundy Thursday?

Maundy Thursday is three days before the resurrection of Christ, when we take communion in remembrance of the Last Supper. We also remember how Christ taught us to love one another, washing the disciples' feet as a servant.


What is Good Friday?

Good Friday is the day we remember Jesus’ death on the cross. Christ was crucified at noon, which is when we begin our Good Friday service, where we contrast the joy of Easter Sunday with the sobriety of this important moment. 

What is Easter?

Easter Sunday is the day we celebrate Christ conquering death, and being resurrected from the dead. In this moment, Christ offers himself in exchange for our sins, to offer us salvation. On Easter we joyously proclaim this good news!
