LENT 2024

Lent is the 40 day preparation for Easter. This year, Gloria Dei’s Lenten theme will look at bread for the journey – those things, people, and events which encourage us in following Jesus to the cross and on to the hope of Easter. The scripture focus will be from John 6 – Jesus said, “I am the bread of Life.” 
Lent 2024 begins with Ash Wednesday, February 14, 2024. On that day, we will have Imposition of Ashes in three ways: 1) Drive-by between 8-9am. Pastor David and Assistant Minister Dana Becker will wait in the parking lot, meet you at your car door for a scripture reading, prayer, confession, ashes and you’re on your way, or, 2) Noon – Sanctuary worship service (inside/outside), 3) 7pm, immediately following the Soup Supper (6pm) and will take place in Bankson Hall.
EVERY WEDNESDAY during the Season of Lent, there will be a soup supper and worship beginning at 6pm. Gather in Bankson Hall. Everyone is invited! Sign-up to provide a soup.
FIRST COMMUNION instruction for children will be provided during the Season of Lent. For three Wednesdays, beginning February 28, 5:15pm, children and parents will meet with the pastor in the Sanctuary. For details and to sign-up, call the church office (949)-493-3414.
