Ash Wednesday and Lent Letter – Encourage to Participate

Dear (NAME),

“To grant to those who mourn in Zion— to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.”—Isaiah 61: 3

A faint spirit, the oil of mourning, the ashes of grief—God promises to deliver us from these. What a blessing it is to serve a God who turns the sorrow of grief into a time of praise!

Importance of Observing Lent


Grace and peace to you as we embark on a journey of reflection, meditation, worship, and service over the course of the next several weeks.

Encouragement to Fast During Lent


Each year, as Lent approaches, many Christians find themselves asking what they should “give up for Lent.”  Though it is not mandatory for a Protestant believer to do so, it has become a tradition in many denominations to fast or abstain from something (food, vices, or other daily enjoyments).

Church Letter on Importance of Leading Family During Lent


For I have chosen him, so that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing righteousness and justice, so that the LORD may bring upon Abraham what He has spoken about him. –Genesis 18:19

For Christians, Easter is one of the biggest holidays of the year; however, we don’t always host the same kind of family engagements at Easter time as we do for the winter holidays.
