40 Days of Lent

Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

This Lenten Season, we are launching a “40-Day Lent Offering Challenge”. Starting on Ash Wednesday (February 14), we will be challenged to do a Daily Prayer and a Daily Offering (a minimum of $1 for Adults and .25₵ for youth & children). Offerings will be inserted in a special folder with pockets. This folder will be given the Sunday before Ash Wednesday. We will also make the Daily Prayer Challenge portion of the folder printable through our website for those who are unable to make it to church to get the folder. 

Once completed for a total minimum amount of $40 ($10 for kids and youth), we will bring our Lent Offering to church on Easter Sunday, March 31, 2024. You can also offer it in advance or later if you’re away during Easter Sunday. The Lent Offering Challenge serves as special offering beyond your regular giving. Proceeds will go to your church’s General Fund.

We hope and pray that you will gladly accept and consider this not only as a challenge but also as a start to your awesome Lenten spiritual journey… SHALOM!

In Christ,

The Finance & Worship Committees
