Lent 2018

No Greater Love

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

    For Shrove Tuesday we want to encourage IBCers to invite friends and neighbors over to enjoy some pancakes and some good conversation. This night is a time for indulging your taste buds and filling up on God’s good gifts before we start our Lenten fast. Good food and good drink should always be shared with people, so Shrove Tuesday is a great time to connect or reconnect with people in your life.

    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?
