Christ Lutheran Community Church

Lenten Study

It is common to associate Lent with sacrifice. Since March of 2020, we have all been living through a period of living without. As a people, as a nation, and as a church, we have been deprived of some of the essential parts of human connection for almost a full year. Many people feel more isolated and many in our community suffer from increased insecurity because of the pandemic.

Perhaps this Lent is not a time to consider what other things we can go without. Even though there may be many months to go, let us gather to look toward a time when we will be able to come together, to worship in-person, and to live in communion in one another’s presence. And let us use this Lent to help us strengthen the ways that we live together in community and in Christ.

Using the story of Jesus’ journey into the wilderness and his temptation by Satan, we will focus with fresh eyes on topics such as:

How Jesus’ example can help us cope with temptation.
How Jesus prepared himself for the mission after the desert.
How we might look at fasting and sacrifice from a different perspective.

Each week we will gather on Wednesday evening at 6:30 pm to share a meal virtually.
At 7:00 pm there will be a short discussion of that week’s study material followed by open conversation. This conversation will prepare us for a time of prayer and worship led by Pastor Steve.
