We are excited to announce our Lenten community-wide study for 2022, These Forty Days. Throughout the last couple of years, we continue to hear how important these resources are for both Advent and Lent. We are blessed and encouraged by your commitment to be in the Word and actively participate in the life and calendar of the Church. We hope that these resources continue to help bring your community together.
For Lent 2022, we are revising our bestselling Lenten devotional, Dr. Jeren Rowell’s These Forty Days. This devotional is a simple guide for the reading of Scripture, reflection, prayer, and response. By beginning each day with intention, these devotionals will shape each of your hours with a heightened sensitivity to the Holy Spirit’s teaching and guidance.
These Forty Days is also available for faith communities in discounted packs of 10.
We are also providing ministry downloads for children, youth and adults. The pastor’s downloadable resource includes weekly sermon outlines, small group discussion guides, service outlines for Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday, powerpoint backgrounds, a promo video and more.
Help children appreciate the significance of Jesus’s walk to the cross by bringing them along with your adult congregation during this season with the children’s ministry downloadable resource. The Children’s Ministry Resource offers creative suggestions for children’s sermons and take-home activities that tie into the weekly sermon outlines.
Encourage your teens to connect their individual stories to the story of the cross with The Youth Ministry Resource. This resource includes prayer stations, thought-provoking games, prompts to jumpstart at-home family conversations, and ideas for social media engagement.
Lent is a season of fasting and contemplation that vitally informs our relationship with Christ and with others. These resources provide an experience for all ages and will inform and transform your Lenten observance.
