Welcome to Trinity United Methodist Church
Lent is a season of Forty days, not counting Sundays. It began on Ash Wednesday and ends on the Saturday before Easter, known as Holy Saturday. Lent comes from the Anglo-Saxon word lencten, meaning "spring." Originally, Lent began as a period of fasting and preparation for baptism and then became a time of penance for all Christians.
For me Lent is not just about penance, but an invitation to have a closer walk with God. During Lent at Trinity we are learning about John's gospel, and how it's a gospel of Light and Life. The synoptic gospels call people into a relationship with Jesus, but John's gospel calls us to believe in him.
In order to believe in Jesus, we have to take a risk. Sometimes we just have to get out of our comfort zones to discover something new and vibrant in our walk with Christ. It goes along with one of our United Methodist principles to be involved in 'risk taking mission and service.' If we don't put ourselves in a different place, then we won't learn something new. Whether it's the church or an individual, I challenge you to try something new this Lent. So here's what's happening during Lent and Holy Week. Try something new!
