Lent 2021

Live as the kind of people that God made us to be. Living this life of freedom! Letting go of those things that are choking the life out of us.

Finding Freedom

Lent is a season of reflection, repentance, and renewal—a season to go deeper with God and partner with him in tending to our souls.

  • Reflection

    Psalm 139:23-24

    Search me, God, and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.
    See if there is any offensive way in me,
    and lead me in the way everlasting.

    Father, where am I experiencing bondage instead of freedom?

  • Repentance

    Psalm 51:1-2

    Have mercy on me, O God,
    according to your unfailing love;
    according to your great compassion
    blot out my transgressions.
    Wash away all my iniquity
    and cleanse me from my sin.

    Father, in light of your goodness and grace, I confess my brokenness and repent of my sin.

  • Renewal

    Psalm 16:11

    You make known to me the path of life;
    you will fill me with joy in your presence,
    with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

    Father, lead me in the way of life and joy as I abide in Jesus.

Confession at Home

One of our Lenten traditions is to place a long black cloth at the front of our stage and invite worshipers to write out any sin they wish to confess on the black cloth using black markers. On Good Friday the black cloth is draped around the cross, symbolizing Christ's death on our behalf.

As 2 Corinthians 5:21 says, "God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God."

Due to health and safety protocols, the black cloth will not be available on our stage this year. As a result, we encourage you to create your own black cloth to use in your rhythm of prayer. Simply grab a piece of black cloth from around the house—perhaps an old t-shirt, blanket, or towel—and a black marker.

As you practice the Lenten rhythms of reflection and repentance, confess your sin on your black cloth and receive the renewal of the Holy Spirit as you experience God's grace and compassion.
