A Season of Reflection


    Lent is the period of 40 days which comes before Easter in the Christian calendar. Beginning on Ash Wednesday, Lent is a season of reflection and preparation before the celebrations of Easter. By observing the 40 days of Lent, Christians replicate Jesus Christ's sacrifice and withdrawal into the desert for 40 days.

In 2019, Ash Wednesday is on March 6, with Easter falling on April 21.

Crete UCC has many ways that you can engage in our Lenten reflections. 

Pastor Jeff and assorted members of our congregation will be leading us through the book GROUNDED by Diana Butler Bass. 

Weekly reflections from Pastor Jeff will be published here, as well, and of course our weekly church services will lead us toward Good Friday, and then Easter.
