Lent begins with Ash Wednesday on February 17. Due to the pandemic, Lent 2021 will look a little different. It will include adapted versions of First Covenant’s favorite ways to mark the Lenten journey: ashes, palms, devotions, and One Great Hour of Sharing. Lent 2021 will also include a few new opportunities to renew our walk with Jesus as well: a labyrinth, outdoor Easter Vigil, Lent candles, and a communion bread-baking team. Be sure to pick up your “Lent-from-Home” kits in the office beginning February 8. It is hoped that this year’s Lenten opportunities will prove as interactive as possible during this pandemic. “I AM…” is the theme for Lent 2021. How did Jesus describe who he is? How does your relationship with Jesus shape your life? Sermons and bible studies and Lent devotions will give all a chance to reflect on and renew our understanding of Jesus. How will you engage “I AM” during Lent? Will you be sure to gather weekly for worship on Facebook LIVE? Will you make “Silent Prayer & Reflection” in a pew or prayer-walking the labyrinth a priority? Will you help collect items for Edison Elementary School’s “Family Pantry?” Engage Lent with gusto as you are able. It is hard to believe that Lent will mark one year since we last met together in the sanctuary. March 15, 2020 was that day, also the first day we tried to share worship on Facebook LIVE. God has kept us “together” from home. God has provided for us through it all! Let us embrace Lent 2021-from home- to grow in our walk with Jesus and give thanks for God’s faithfulness.
