Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 22

Lent is a season of forty days (not counting Sundays), beginning with Ash Wednesday through Holy Saturday, leading up to Easter Sunday. It is a time of repentance, self-examination, reflection, and preparation for the coming of Easter—a time to grow spiritually in our relationship with God.
During Lent, some may wish to give up something or take on something new, such as regular Bible reading or reaching out to find new ways of service to others. It is also a time to set aside a regular time of prayer. As a symbol of that time, Zion’s Global Mission Committee is providing Lenten self-denial envelopes for people to consider giving a monetary donation which is used to fund various mission projects that Zion supports. These projects are: All Kids Can Learn International (AKCLI) in Zambia, Africa; Redeemer Lutheran Church in North Minneapolis; and Mission Jamaica.

As we look for the coming of Lent, we encourage you to use this time as a new way to grow in your relationship with God, and to consider financially supporting Zion’s many mission projects as a way to be the hands and feet of God.

Watch for the Lenten self-denial letter and envelope in February.

To give online, use this form and select ‘Seasonal Donation’ in the Fund box and ‘Lent’ in the Sub Fund box.
