Lent Devotional Resource: “Preparing Our Hearts for Easter.” The word “Lent” comes from the Old English word “lengten,” which means “spring” - when the days lengthen and new life springs forth. It is a time in which we anticipate the victory of the light and life of Christ over the darkness of sin and death. In the 40 days that lead up to Easter, this is the time during which we are reminded of our brokenness yet increasingly anticipating the reality of God’s redeeming grace. To prepare for Easter, check out the “Lenten Devotionals” by Redeemer Presbyterian Church [www.redeemer.com/learn/resources_by_topic/lenten_devotionals].
The Funeral Service of Mrs. Liz Chan will be held on SAT, MAR 23 @9:30AM in the main sanctuary. The NRAC family and community is welcomed to attend.
