Lent Begins Today – February 17, 2021
Zoom Ash Wednesday Service Tonight at 7:30 PM
The season of Lent is upon us once again. Today marks the beginning of our 40 day journey towards Easter (not including Sundays which have been traditionally viewed as “mini-Easters” along the way). I’ve always loved Lent because it is a time that invites us to reflect, spend some intentional time engaging in new or familiar spiritual practices that nurture us, and do a little spiritual spring cleaning to clear away anything that might be cluttering our hearts and minds in order to make a little more room for God’s grace and the most important things in life.
Tonight at 7:30 PM, we invite you to join us for a Zoom Ash Wednesday service in collaboration with our friends down at First Congregational Church here in Long Beach.

However you choose to observe it, may this Lenten season help you prepare for the glory of Easter’s dawn and may you experience God’s love in each step of your journey.
