Design for Christian Living

Lent at Shadyside


Lent is a forty-day season in the Church inspired by Christ’s forty days in the wilderness, during which our Lord prepared for His ministry of self-giving, teaching, healing, and giving His life on the cross. During this season, Christ’s followers seek to re-design their thoughts and lives in the pattern of Jesus. To do so, we may choose to share in acts of learning, of wellness, and of self-denial: dying to the old self and putting on the new identity designed in God’s image.

Join us as we begin our Lenten journey on Ash Wednesday, February 26, at 7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary, with the Reverend Lynn M. Portz preaching in a service that includes the Lord’s Supper and the ancient custom of the imposition of ashes. Nursery care is available.
