March 9 – April 6, 2022

This is your invitation to keep a Holy Lent and to grow in your faith. The pandemic feels like wilderness, but God does amazing things in the wilderness, even when the wilderness stretches on for a while! These are all wilderness stories that remind us of what God can teach there, and that good things come out of wilderness times.

Growing in the Wilderness is a 5-part video series. Each week on Wednesdays, you can check back on this page for the weekly video along with a reflection guide. We encourage you to use this resource individually, with a friend, or in a small group setting. Most of all, we encourage you to be an active participant in growing closer to God and in faith during this Holy Lent! You can find the series promo kit including a flyer and social images here. If you would like access to the video series ahead of the release dates for teaching purposes, please email the Communications Team.
