The Season of Lent

My Gift to God: A 40-day Act of Lent Devotion and Worship

We will not have our “Flowering of the Cross” service on Easter morning. Instead, we will decorate the Cross with our personal “My Gift to God.”

“Our Gift to God” is a 40-day act of Lent devotional and worship. We have strips of colored car stock on which to write something you will personally commit to during Lent. They will be attached to the cross during the Ash Wednesday’s service. The gift or act of service is different for everyone. It may be acts kindness, prayers, sharing, caring, or giving up of something to reconnect with the daily love of God and remember the gift of Jesus Christ. 

The message strips will be available in baskets located on display tables in the church. If you cannot come by the church, call or email the office or Pastor Rick and a strip of paper with your gift will be filled out and attached to the cross for you. 

May God Bless you on this, your spiritual journey during Lent.
