Essential Lent | Holy Moments and Sacred Experiences for Your Whole Congregation


Making pretzels. Flying a kite. Sharing a snack. What do these things have to do with Lent? Quite a bit, as you’ll see in Essential Lent: Holy Moments and Sacred Experiences for Your Whole Congregation. 

In one volume, Essential Lent offers interesting, easy-to-prepare activities and worship resources that invite your church to delve a little deeper into this season and make it more meaningful than ever.

You’ll gain new perspectives on this holy season as you learn about Lent observances around the world. You’ll be encouraged to try new things in worship, but will find it equally fulfilling to practice traditional Lenten rituals included here, such as foot washing, stations of the cross, and more.

But perhaps the most exciting thing about Essential Lent is that it’s designed to engage everyone in your congregation, regardless of age or individual faith journey: 

  • Adults
  • Young Adults
  • Youth (ages 12-17)
  • Older Children (ages 7-11)
  • Younger Children (ages 3-6)
  • Intergenerational Groups
  • Seekers and Those New to Church
Essential Lent will guide your congregation through the most important season of the church year. You’ll never look at Lent the same way again.
