Lent is a six week season of preparation marked by the three practices of prayer, almsgiving and fasting. The hope of the season is to recommit ourselves to our Christian identity in preparation for the season of Eastertide. There are lots of opportunities to reconnect with your faith at First Olympia this season:
Ash Wednesday: March 1, 7pm
Maundy Thursday: April 13, 7pm
Good Friday: April 14, 12pm
Sermon Series – Read about it in the Courier
New Lenten Classes for Adults
Check them out at our Adult Faith Formation page!
What are our children and youth up to? Children and youth use the Sunday school hour during Lent to plan the Children & Youth led Worship Services (Sunday April 30, 2017).
