Holy Season (Lent)

Lent is a solemn religious observance  that begins on Ash Wednesday (February 14 and ends on Holy Thursday the day before March 28th, 2024, Good Friday, ). The purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer through prayerrepentance of sins, , atonement, and self-denial.  Its institutional purpose is heightened in the annual commemoration of Holy Week, marking the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, which recalls the tradition and events of the New Testament beginning on Friday of Sorrows, further climaxing on Jesus' crucifixion on Good Friday (March 29, 2024) , which ultimately culminates in the joyful celebration on Easter Sunday of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.  (Sunday, March 31,2024)

In Lent, many Christians commit to fasting or giving up certain types of luxuries as a form of penance. Many Christians also add a Lenten spiritual discipline, such as reading a daily devotional or praying on scheduled times 

to draw themselves nearer to God.  Some churches remove flowers from their altars. 

Lent is traditionally described as lasting for forty days, in commemoration of the forty days Jesus spent fasting in the desert, according to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, before beginning his public ministry, during

which he endured temptation by Satan.

The forty days of Lent begins this year on February 14th and continues through to Thursday, March 28, 2024 and the 40 days do not include Sundays.                                                                                                                     Cornerstone Chosen Ministries has incorporated the observance of the season of Lent.   During this Holy Season, we stress the importance of giving up something to discipline our flesh and to surrender to our spirit.  We fast and pray as believers, knowing that Jesus instructed us that some things will only happen through fasting and prayer (Mark 9:29)

We acknowledge that in order to have a relationship with God, we must first acknowledge our sins and ask for forgiveness and we do this through repentance (From then on Jesus began to preach, “Repent of your sins and  turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near. Matthew 4:17 NLT)

We acknowledge the Atonement of which is the reconciliation of God and Us through the sacrificial death of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  We celebrate the Holy Week to acknowledge the death and resurrection of our Savior. 

Good Friday - Good Friday is the day that our Lord Jesus Christ went to Calvary and died on the cross for all of our sins.  This day signifies the unconditional love that God has for us.  In 2015 at Cornerstone Chosen Ministries, we implemented this day to be a day of Prayer and reverence for our Savior.  Our Sanctuary doors open at 8:00 am and is open all day until 7:00 pm.  During the hours of prayer the Sanctuary is open for anyone who wants to pray or meditate to come into the House of the Lord and reverence that time.  

February 14th-March 28th, 2024

In addition to our traditional personal sacrifice, where we give up something for 40 days, (food, social media, tv, whatever you decide, it is your choice).
