The Lenten Season

Pastor Irvin Stapf

Lent is a time in our church year that we reflect on our spiritual health. It is a time of taking stock. Lent originated in the very earliest days of the Church as a preparatory time for Easter, when the faithful re-dedicated themselves, and when converts were instructed in the faith and prepared for baptism.

By observing the forty days of Lent, the individual Christian imitates Jesus’ withdrawal into the wilderness for forty days.

We welcome you to share our:

  • Lenten suppers and service Wednesdays , 6 PM
  • Holy Thursday Sedar Meal & Service, April 2, 6 PM
  • Good Friday "Quiet Communion", April 3, Noon

To assist you with your personal Lenten reflection, members of Christ Lutheran have written a Devotional Booklet that you can read on-line, or download and print by clicking "In Our Own Words"
