Lenten Devotional Resources

Lenten Devotional Resources

During this season of Lent, resources are available that accompany both our Lenten theme of Again and Again: a Lenten Refrain and our special offering focus on ELCA World Hunger’s 40 Days of Giving.  Use these resources to guide your Lenten disciplines of study, prayer and giving.

You can access these resources online or sign up to receive by email (see below).  Lenten Devotional Packets are also available for pick up in the dropbox outside the west entrance to the church.
