Lent at CPC: Steps Along the Way

The season of Lent consists of the forty days (excluding Sundays) before Easter when we prepare our hearts, minds, and spirits for the remembrance of our Lord’s death on the cross, and for the celebration of Christ’s resurrection. In the early church, following Christ was known as “the Way.”  Sermons in Lent will look at steps along our own faith journey as we seek to be People of the Way.
