Lenten Personal Study Opportunities
On February 5, 2016
Life is busy and you can’t always make it to Grace Church to participate in worship services and special events. That’s why we offer a variety of printed materials and online programs you can use to enhance your Lenten experience — at your convenience. Booklets are available at Grace Church; follow the links provided here for online programs.

Be encouraged, guided and inspired to be a force for change in the world with this fun Lenten “action” devotional for children and families. (booklet available at Grace Church)
- Lent Madness
This online devotion is back for another year of saintly fun. Based loosely on college basketball’s “March Madness,” this program pits two saints against each other each day. You read about two saints and cast a vote for your favorite. Winners move on toward the “Golden Halo” championship. Saintly Scorecards with this year’s contenders are available at Grace Church. Follow the program at www.LentMadness.org.
