Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday.
Lent is a time of solemn observance, pondering the suffering of Jesus Christ who offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for all of our wrongs. It is a time of self-examination and reflection, realizing anew our need for a Savior.
There are many ways to honor Christ during Lent. Some people give up something they enjoy (like ice cream). Each time they think about that item, they take a moment to ponder all that Christ gave up for them. Some Christians serve others in extra measure, while others engage in special devotional readings. Many believers choose to do all three.
This year at Faith Covenant we invite you to engage with God and others by participating in the 40 Day Covenant Challenge. Together, we will be reading through the the four gospels (stories of Jesus) found in the New Testament of the Bible.
Here is how to participate:
- Read through all four gospels during Lent using a Bible reading plan.
- Pick two partners to do this with you, and each day, text them something that stands out to you from your reading. It could be a thought or simply just one of the verses you read.
- Each day pray for 2-3 people who need to know Christ and/or need a home church.
- Make at least 1 invitation to the people you are praying for ask them to join us for worship during Lent or at Easter.
