Lent is a season of forty days, excluding Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. Lent comes from the Anglo Saxon word "lencten," which means "spring." The forty days represents the time Jesus was in the wilderness, overcoming the temptation of satan and preparing to begin His ministry. Lent is a time of repentance, fasting, and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is also a season self-examination and reflection. Many Christians focus on their relationship with God by choosing to give up something or serving others.
We are so excited to journey through this season of Lent with you! On this page, you'll find all the exciting things that are happening in the life of our Student Ministry during Lent. May this season of Lent help all of us grow more intimate in our personal relationship with Jesus!
