Traditionally, Lent serves as a way to commemorate Jesus’s 40 days of fasting and temptation in the desert. While Lent is not commanded in Scripture, it is a personal and communal way to prepare our hearts and minds to celebrate the resurrection.
At Eleven22, we practice Lent because we believe it is beneficial at times to tell our flesh no, so we can tell Jesus yes.We encourage you during the 40 days leading up to Easter to prayerfully and sacrificially abstain from specific foods, beverages, and/or activities to cultivate a season of intentional focus and dependence on Jesus, the Holy Spirit and your Heavenly Father.
FASTING & HOUR OF PRAYER
Wednesdays, February 17 - March 31
As a church, during Lent we will fast from food on Wednesdays from sunup to sundown. All campuses will be open each Wednesday beginning February 17 through March 31 from 12:00-1:00pm for prayer.
We kicked off Lent season with Elder-Led Prayer, a night of worship, prayer and reflection led by our elders. If you missed it, you can watch it here.
