Lent Programs & Activities

Lent calls us to draw closer to God. St. Martin-in-the-Fields Episcopal Church offers these opportunities for prayer, reflection, worship, community, and study in Lent.

 

Daily Lenten Series & Sunday Discussion

We invite you to participate in a daily devotion and a weekly noon Sunday class that are connected, using a series designed so that everyone in our community can participate. “It’s Time to Stop, Pray, Work, Play & Love” offers a video series with a reflection workbook and the opportunity to join conversation on social media.

Everyone is busy. Time is at a premium. Squeezing much time out for devotion can be a challenge. It is hard for us all to come together to deepen our faith. In this series offers short, 2-minute, daily, mobile-friendly videos, so it’s possible to fit into a busy day. Each video asks a thoughtful question and invites us to jot our reflections in a workbook or share them on social media. On Sundays after the 10:30am service, adults and older kids can gather whether they’ve done any watching or reflecting during the week or not, view a compilation video, and discuss and share in a forum facilitated by our rector, Scot McComas.
