Lent is the period preceding Easter that in the Christian Church is devoted to fasting, abstinence, and penitence in commemoration of Christ’s fasting in the wilderness.

During Lent this year, We’ll be learning about Luther’s personal practices and how they influence our devotional lives.

Check out our Reformation 500 Bookstore! Devotional books are available for sale in the Gathering Space to help deepen our learnings. Get up to 50% off and free shipping! The table will be staffed in between services on February 19, 26 and March 1, 5.
