Let's do Lent together!
Worship, read, pray, serve and give together
Pick up a free Lenten devotional book beginning Ash Wednesday written and compiled by Marvin laity. The booklets will be available around the church, and the devotionals will be posted on our Facebook page and sent in a daily email.
Prayer and scripture calendars will also be available around the church for you to pick up.
