Lent, Holy Week, & Easter 2024

This year, we’ll get ready for Easter by walking with Jesus through the Gospel of Matthew. As we will discover, Jesus fulfilled the promises of God in unexpected ways and calls us to follow his unexpected path through the world as it is toward the world as it will be. We would love to share this journey with you.

These are the opportunities available during Lent, Holy Week, leading up to Easter Sunday. You are invited to participate in this journey.
