Greetings in the matchless name of Jesus!
2 Corinthians 13:5-6 says "Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves that Jesus Christ is in you? -- unless in-deed you are disqualified. But I trust that you will know that we are not disqualified."
Lent is a forty-day period before Easter which begins on Ash Wednesday.
Lent is a season of Self Examination, Prayer, Sacrificing and Repentance. In the earliest days of the Church Lent began as a forty-day time of preparation for Easter. By observing Lent, the individual Christian imitates Jesus’ withdrawal into the wilderness to fast for forty days and forty nights. (Matthew 4:2)
We at Fresh Wind Christian Center do not celebrate the traditional practices of Lent, however, we do observe this 40-day season for a time of Self Examination, Prayer, Sacrificing and Repentance.
During the Lenten season, February 17 – April 3, 2021. We will fast Monday through Saturday, omitting Sundays, for a total of Forty days.
We will deny our flesh and focus on the suffering, death and resurrection of our Savior, Lord and King Jesus Christ. Because He sacrificed his life, died, rose from the grave and paid for our sins, we have life both abundant and eternal.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please understand that this is voluntary. If you have special dietary requirements, please do not feel obligated to participate. We do ask if you would still use this time to add study of scripture, increase your time in prayer and become more involved in ministry.
*Please see the attachment for the Lent fasting schedule and support scriptures to aid you in prayer and study.
