U Matters - 11 Feb 2016

by Pastor Michele on February 11, 2016

Lent began on Ash Wednesday (10 Feb), and will last for forty days ending Holy Saturday. The forty days represent the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, endured temptation and prepared for ministry. For the Christian Lent is a time for repentance, fasting and internal preparation for Easter.  It is often used as a time of self examination and self reflection. You may hear people mention that during this season they are going to 'give up something or give something of themselves' in an attempt to draw near to Christ. Lent can also be used as a time to prepare for Baptism, which will occur on Easter Sunday. As you prepare for Easter, to celebrate the greatest gift and sacrifice given, how will you engage with the season?

Please join us for a very special evening of prayer, "From Dust 'til Dawn" at 7:30PM on Thursday, 18 February. Those unable to attend are welcome to sign up via the online prayer vigil for this 24x7 prayer event. Pray below for more details!
