Lent begins Wednesday, March 6th and this year at OCC we are aiming to do Lent differently. 40acts is a generosity challenge for Lent, founded in the United Kingdom.
For eight years, 40acts has asked a question: what if Lent could be about more than just giving stuff up?
What if it could be a time of
radical generosity as well as spiritual discipline?
Over the years, 40acts has become a movement of over 100,000 people on a mission to impact their communities with generosity – during Lent and beyond.
When you sign-up you will receive a daily email throughout Lent (not including Sundays!), with a generosity challenge (an ‘act’) and short Bible-based blog sent straight to your inbox. Each act is designed to sharpen your awareness and give you practical ways to stretch your faith as well as your generosity, with three challenge levels.
Find out more at https://40acts.org.uk/about/ and sign-up today. There will also be a private OCC 40Acts Facebook Group you can join to help support you in your Lenten journey (contact Allie Williams at awilliams@OkemosOCC.org to join.)
There will be additional events, worship services, Bible Study, and multiple ways for you and your family to get involved this Lenten Season…more information to come!
