The Uncommon Lent Experience

Here in the Chicagoland area, participating in Lent is a very common practice. Yet the extent of our participation is in giving up something and not eating certain foods on certain days. But what if there was more to Lent than just saying no to a couple of things for a period of time? What if there was deep, spiritual benefit to knowing, understanding and practicing the entirety of the Lent experience? From Jesus' 40 days in the Wilderness before starting His earthly ministry, as well as the 40 days from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday, we believe there is power and life-change that happens in embracing Lent to the full. Join us at Avenue as we participate in this common journey in an uncommon way.
