Lent 2023

  • Lent 2023: Encountering Jesus

Have you ever had an encounter that changed your life? An interaction when you felt seen for the first time? Or when one person put you on a new trajectory? What about when someone receives your questions rather than dismissing them? Or when someone’s presence had the power to raise you up when you needed it most?
Join us this Lenten season as we examine powerful life-changing interactions with Jesus and ask how Encountering Jesus can change our lives as well.
