Road to Hope

Road to Hope

For centuries, Christians have used the 40 days leading up to Easter, called Lent, as an intentional time to focus on Jesus.

Join us this Lent on the Road to Hope as we post a short devotion each morning to start your day with a Christ-centered perspective.

Be encouraged. Be inspired. Be challenged. Be changed.

Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord— the King of Israel!” Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it; as it is written: “Do not be afraid, daughter of Zion. Look, your king is coming, sitting on a donkey’s colt!”
