Lent begins on March 1 with Ash Wednesday. Lent is a time when Christians examine their lives in light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We ask ourselves where we are in step with Jesus and where are we out of step with Jesus.
The first five Sundays in Lent will feature a “blessing of the shoes.” You are invited to wear or bring in the specified shoes for each Sunday. Don’t worry if you forget. We will still bless your shoes. In addition to blessing shoes, FUMC will be collecting for the Elmhurst Shoe Fund.
Where will you be stepping out with Jesus this Lent?
“Blessing of the Shoes” Schedule:
March 5: ACTIVE shoes (walking, running, hiking)
