WHAT IS LENT?
In the Christian tradition, Lent is the period from Ash Wednesday to Easter. The traditional purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer (through prayer, repentance, almsgiving and self-denial) for the commemoration of the death and resurrection of Jesus.
THIS YEAR'S STUDY:
Each year at Stanwich, we conduct church-wide weekly Bible studies during the season of Lent, which begins on Ash Wednesday (February 26) and leads to Holy Week. All life groups study the same material each week. This year we have chosen the sermon series entitled Jesus is called many things in the New Testament, from the New Adam to the Light of the World. Each proclamation reveals unique truths about him. This Lent we will be taking a deeper look at seven statements and stories of Jesus, and their implications. If you plan to join one of the groups on this list, please email the leader. We also invite you to take a look at other events we host during Holy Week.
