Resources for Lent at Home

During the season of Lent, we will provide a resource table in the Commons with ways for you and your family to practice Lent at home.

April 10: Journey to Holy Week Service

This service invites children to follow in Jesus’ footsteps through the final days of his life. Beginning with the celebration of Palm Sunday (including a live donkey). Then, attendees will move into the events of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and ending with the promise of Easter resurrection. This will be a 45-minute service. All are invited to stay for a pizza dinner immediately following. Families are also invited to bring a coat for donation, in remembrance of the coats that were placed at Jesus’ feet as he entered Jerusalem.
