Throughout the history of the Church, followers of Jesus have taken the forty days leading up to Easter to focus their hearts in preparation for celebrating the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. This year, many of us in the New City family are journeying together in our faith, as we observe the life-giving practices of prayer, fasting, self-denial, and repentance.

Want to Join in the Journey?
- When: Lent begins Wednesday February 26th (Feb 26 - Apr 12th)

This guide walks you through the seven weeks of Lent. Each week includes a reading from the life of Christ in the Gospel of Luke, as well as four supplemental passages to consider throughout the week. Additionally, there is a suggested fast to coincide with each week. Our Hope is that this Guide will provide additional focus during Lent, while supplementing your ongoing CBR Commitment (Community Bible Reading)

*Note: During Lent, Sundays are "celebration days" that point us forward to Resurrection (Easter) Sunday. So whatever you've chosen to fast (entertainment, certain foods, ...etc.) take Sundays as a day of enjoying those things in worship and celebration to God.
