Lent 2019

From Death to Life

Lent at IBC

Lent is an invitation to follow Jesus closely as we enter a season of reflection, repentance, and renewal.

Important Days & Services

  • Shrove Tuesday

    Host a Gathering

    Shrove Tuesday is a unique opportunity for you to invite friends and neighbors into your home to enjoy fellowship and good conversation. This can be a chance to connect or reconnect with people in your life. You can ask questions about how people observe Lent, fasting and their experiences, or discuss the purpose of fasting for 40 days. Join us the next day on March 6 for the Ash Wednesday service.

    Ideas:

    Make it easy, ask everyone to bring something to share

    If you are giving up food items for Lent, this is a great time to clean out the pantry and share your sweets before they go away for 40 days.

    Consider having everyone bring food to donate to the IBC Food Pantry like canned goods or pancake mix as a way to bless others.

    Try asking questions about how people follow Lent; about fasting and their experiences; why do we give things up in our lives for these 40 days?
