MCCC Lent 2021 Schedule
Living the Resurrection
After Jesus lived, died, and rose again he would leave behind his disciples to carry on his transforming work in the world. He would call all his disciples to a ministry of care, servanthood, new life, and love–each one called to live out the resurrection story. Jesus taught many lessons and this year we will glean from our lectionary readings just some of them: Compassion, Repentance, Reach, Equity, and Transformation. God bless you in this season of reflection, repentance, deepening our relationship with Christ, and learning to Live the Resurrection.
In addition to “giving something up for Lent,” consider…
Giving to Kids Weekend Meals or the Week of Compassion.
Fasting from excess television or social media.
Refraining from purchasing items you don’t need.
