Celebrating the Christ
(Excited about Jesus who is the Christ)
February 17 – April 4, 2021
Lent Season Assignment

This lent season is very different from what we have experienced in past years. This  pandemic that has shaken the planet. 2020 has given us a strong foundation for  wanting to get even closer to the Christ. Jesus our beloved and unmatched Savior  is Christ to us. The title Christ identifies Him as, “the Anointed, the Messiah and the  Preeminent in all creation.” 

This lent season should be the most sacred ever, because of where we are as a  people. We have lost love ones to this pandemic, our country has been corrupt with  evil forces and hope for some is becoming a flickering flame. If there ever was a  time for us to be excited about the Christ it’s now.  

Vaccines are good, and medical advances are wonderful but our real joy and  excitement should be and should always remain in the “Christ.” Jesus Christ the  lover of our souls, the protector and provider of our souls. For this lent season I  have a few practical things I want you to do. There will be no lent services as we  have done for the past years but we will gather virtually each Wednesday for the  study of God’s WORD and I want you to make the commitment, during this lent  season.

This pandemic has created  financial hardships for our church. We need for every person to do  something.  

Attend the (Wednesday in the Word Bible study) each Wednesday during  lent 

I am convinced when we deliberately get close to God in reading the bible, fasting, praying and giving to help sustain our church, He will spiritually reward. Join us this  season of Lent, it will bless your life tremendously.
