Lent began Wednesday, March 1 and is marked by the 40 days, not including Sundays, between Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. We observe Lent as a deliberate way to join with the church around the world in preparing ourselves for celebrating Easter (resurrection).

Instead of charging ahead to Easter, Lent calls us to think about our relationship with God and the ways we respond or fail to respond to His love and care for us. Lent is a time of repentance, an opportunity to experience God’s mercy, to be set free from patterns of behavior, and to embrace a life of love and holiness…a time to experience the depths of the Easter message.

This year Common Ground has created a weekly Lent Devotional, that includes a daily experiential calendar, as a resource for you during the Lenten season. Clay to use for your devotional is available at Midtown and West.

Have further questions about Lent? Please contact Jim Matthies.

Empowered to Connect Conference

All Common Ground attenders are invited to the Empowered to Connect Conference on April 7-8, from 10 am–6 pm at Midtown. Empowered to Connect is a two-day conference designed to help adoptive and foster parents, ministry leaders and professionals better understand how to connect with “children from hard places” in order to help them heal and become all that God desires for them to be.

The Empowered to Connect simulcast is brought to you by Show Hope and The Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development at TCU, and sponsored by the Midtown Vision Team. Cost to attend is $15 per person and includes printed materials. Childcare is not available, and lunch is on your own for the extended lunch break.

Space is limited to the first 50 registrants, with priority given to Common Ground attenders. The deadline to register is April 3. To register, click here.
