Connect with God
One practice people have during Lent is prayer. This week, find a time to go away somewhere…maybe a hidden corner of your room or your favorite space outside. Then, spend some time listening for God! Watch this video of when Jesus went away for a while to spend some time with God. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-6a25Yo2wE Read the story of Jesus going away to the desert in Matthew 4:1-11
Make a Difference
- We will be making meals to feed the hungry with Stop Hunger Now with the church in June. First we have to raise the money. Each life-saving meal costs only a quarter! Start collecting your quarters and bring them to church!
