The Lenten Season is forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on “Ash Wednesday” February 17, 2020 and ends on Holy Saturday.
We will journey for forty days of self-examination, repentance and renewal leading towards Easter. We will recall the Easter story, and how Jesus gave his life to redeem the world (us) and gave us the gift of salvation. There is no greater Love.
We invite YOU to journey with us through this Lenten season in personal introspection, repentance, forgiveness, renewal, prayer, fasting, and Biblical study. May your life be transformed and may you in turn offer love and hope to someone else.
HOSTED BY: Dr. Otto Harris, pastor at St. Mark’s UMC & Dr. Stephanie Moore Hand, Metro District Vitality Strategist

RESOURCES TO CONNECT WITH THE COMMUNITY:
The Appalachian District Church Vitality Team has been prayerfully seeking ways to help support you and the ministries of your local congregation during this COVID-19 pandemic. Together they have diligently researched and connected with others throughout the conference and our denomination to identify resources and offer them to you. We hope they will be helpful to you and bless you greatly in leading your churches and communities through this unprecedented time. We are very grateful to the District Vitality Team and other contributors for their great work on this resource.
This faithful team has created three documents, two of which you are receiving today. They include:
- Family Home Worship – designed to help families establish a regular worship space within their homes as well as a time where they can worship together.
- Tech Strategies – to help guide you in selecting effective tools and resources within your budget to best communicate in the digital world.
We believe these resources will be of great benefit to you. Also know that the District Vitality Team is available to answer any questions you might have in regards to the documents attached. If you have questions, you may email Rev. Howard Fleming at email@example.com.
