Lenten Season 2024 – Depths of Love

Lent Worship Series @ First UMC Long Beach Downtown Campus at 208 Pine Street in Long Beach :  February 18 – March 29

Join us in worship at our downtown campus of First UMC Long Beach at 8:30 or 11:00 am as we explore the depths of God’s love for you in Christ Jesus.

The Season of Lent is a time of self-reflection, of spiritual examination. While that is a healthy and necessary exercise, we don’t examine ourselves in isolation. Instead, we are invited to lay our lives alongside the life of Jesus. It is a sobering exercise to say the least. And yet, what we discover in this examination of his life and ours, is not condemnation or recrimination. Instead, we are overwhelmed, the farther we go on this journey with him, by the depths of love he has for all of us. Lent is a time for getting our spiritual house in order, that is true. But above all, it is an invitation to once again commit to love like Christ loves.

Lent Dinner and Discipleship Wednesdays At Our Downtown Campus

February 21 – March 20: 5:30 – 7:00 PM

The Way: Walking in the Footsteps of Jesus

Join us Wednesday nights for a free supper and a Lenten study that allows us to walk in the footsteps of Jesus.  Using historical information, archaeological data, and stories of the faith, we will follow in the footsteps of Jesus from his baptism to the temptations to the heart of his ministry, including the people he loved, the parables he taught, the enemies he made, and the healing he brought. This 40-day focus will help us grow deeper in faith, learn more about the life of Christ, spend time daily reading and reflecting upon the Scriptures, and invite all ages, through the children’s and youth studies, to grow together in their faith. Supper will be served from 5:30 – 6:00 PM followed by our study from 6:00 – 7:00 PM.
