Adult Deepening Opportunities for Lent
The season of Lent is an ideal time to find new and creative ways to grow in faith and one’s relationship with God and others. This Lent, we are delving into what it means to cultivate “the fruits of the Spirit,” (inspired by Galatians 5:22-23). We hope you will make time to join these Lenten Adult Deepening activities.
Thrifty Threads is supporting four families who have shared some specific needs with organizations we have partnered with. We have passed along outfits for parents along with what we could to the children. It seems like there is also eagerness to receive books along with the clothing.
Each year, we decorate the Sanctuary with flowers donated by individuals and families honoring or in remembrance of a family member or friend. Even though we cannot gather in person this year, we are continuing this beloved tradition.
Many people take on fasting as a spiritual practice during Lent. This means that they pick something special to give up or use less of, as a way of getting closer to God. Some people give up luxuries like chocolate or butter, or they may choose to keep a vegan diet for Lent. Other people give up habits that distract them from being their best self like gossiping.
