Can Lent Be Exciting? YES!

https://www.youtube.com/embed/fYq19_il8IM?rel=0We believe that this year, Lent can be more than you expected it to be!  It is inspiring, transformative, and as we die to ourselves, new life is reborn as we are resurrected with Christ on Easter Sunday.  This year, we want you to do something different;  we have several suggestions below to help you make the most of your lenten journey.  Click on the suggestions to see more information on each program or event.
