40Acts is 40 days, 40 reflections, and 40 challenges
We're excited to offer 40Acts Lenten guide.  Our sermon series during Lent will focus on the parables of Jesus, and these Lenten readings will include reflections on the impact of these special teachings of Christ.  Every day throughout the Lenten season (not including Sundays), there will be an action posted for the day.  Each act is designed to give you practical ways to deepen your relationship with Christ.  It will include a reading from Scripture, a short devotional, and a simple achievable action for the day.  May God use Lent as a season of renewal in your life and in our lives together as a community of faith.
