Lent is the 40 days leading up to Easter (minus Sundays.) Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. This year, Ash Wednesday is on February 26th. Lent is a time where we step out of our normal routines, and step closer to God. Here are all the opportunities for growing closer to God and his people during this time:

Our theme for this year is "Wilderness". We've all been there. If you are not there now, you have been in the past, and will probably be there again. Wilderness is the place where we feel lost, alone, and without a good direction, without hope. Where is God in the wilderness of your life?
