Lenten Journey



The purpose of the Season of Lent is to strengthen one’s identity in Christ, the church, and the Kingdom. The Lenten experience is meant to help church members better understand what it means to be a part of the kingdom of God that submits itself to Christ.


Please join us at New Bethlehem Church each week during Lent for an informal event/study called "I Am A Church Member" based on the book "I Am A Church Member" by Thom S. Rainer. A free copy of the book will be provided to participants.
