Lent, which is the 40 days leading to Easter, is a season traditionally used to focus attention toward repentance and reflection on our mortality, sin, brokenness, and the ultimate need for a Savior. Much like Advent, Lent focuses attention on the work of Christ. To help us use the season well, consider participating in two ways:
Weekly Prayer Gathering: Every Sunday through Lent we will have a weekly prayer gathering before service. This gathering will include guided prayer led by several leaders. The gathering will occur on Sunday mornings from 10:00-10:20 am in the prayer room at the worship space If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Lent Devotional: Check out this video by Kathy Keller and sign up for a free daily Lent devotional. Each day you will be sent a short reflection to assist your engagement with this season.
New Series: For the Lent season, we will start a new series called "The Formative Power of Lament - Lament in the Psalms.” For more on this series, check out www.reh.nyc/currentseries
Ash Wednesday Service: We will be joining a local church partner, Metro Hope, for an Ash Wednesday service. Join us! We will meet for a brief service at 6:30pm at the REH Worship Space.
Good Friday Service: We are glad to again join our East Harlem church partners again for a joint Good Friday service. This service will take place on March 29th. More details to follow.
Lent Article: A few years ago Angela Adour, who oversees our pastoral care, was asked to write a Lenten article for Redeemer churches and ministries. We hope you find it helpful. You can read it here.
