Lent 2022

Lent is a season of 40 days (not counting Sundays) leading up to Easter. It’s a time when Christians take time to grow in faith, pay more attention to God, and get ourselves ready to tell the sacred story of the death and resurrection of Jesus. 

2022 Lenten Devotional

We have two different options for our Lenten Devotional this season. 

We have copies of the devotional book Drawn to the Cross by Henri Nouwen. Pick one up at worship beginning February 27 or by coming by the church during the week.

If you’d prefer a digital option, we will once again be partnering with other churches for a twice-a-week devotional by text or email. 

The theme this year is “Psalms our Lord Said.”  The Psalms are an ancient prayer book (found in the Old Testament of the Bible).  These are prayers that Jesus would have prayed, and they are also words that the early church used to understand Jesus.  Every entry will be written by a pastor (from one of the churches joining together to make this devotion) and will explore the connection between a psalm and a story from the Gospels.  It’s a great chance to learn a bit about the Bible and learn to think about Jesus more like the early Christians did.  These devotionals are being shared at churches across Virginia and beyond. 

If you’re interested in receiving these devotionals you can sign up to receive them by TEXT or by EMAIL using the information below. 

The Devotional will begin on Ash Wednesday (March 2) and then will be sent on Mondays and Fridays during Lent. There will be a post each day of Holy Week as well.

Lenten Easter Mission Offering

Lenten Easter Mission Offering 2022: Heart Work

March is here. March is hope. March is a madness with the seasonal tug between a fading winter and an emerging spring. March is basketball. March is spring training for baseball. March on the church calendar is Lent, and the annual Lenten Easter Mission Offering (LEMO).

For many years, the generous hearts of the Trinity congregation have financially sustained LEMO. These acts of financial kindness have supported nonprofits in our city, state, country, and world.

This scripture from John 14:27: “Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid,” make me think about the people in our community. For lots of different reasons, we know there are troubled and fearful hearts all around us. Donating to LEMO can help reduce the stress experienced by troubled and fearful hearts.
We hope you will prayerfully consider donating.

When you do, it’s a win for two hearts—the giver and the receiver.

Ash Wednesday Service

Ash Wednesday is March 2, 2022. Ash Wednesday is the day when we gather to begin our 40-day journey called Lent. Every year we gather to remind ourselves that we are not eternal. We confront our own mortality and confess our sin before God within the community of faith. The use of ashes is a sign of mortality and repentance.
