Since the days of the Early Church, Christians have been preparing for the Easter Celebration by putting aside 40 days for prayer, fasting, and intentional focus on God. In many churches, this time was used to prepare new members to join the church and many were baptized on Easter.
This year at Kerr we will be participating in these ancient practices by studying the Book of Ephesians, inviting people to give weekly items to Light of Life Rescue Mission in addition to regular giving, and holding a new members class. See Pastor KJ if you would like to be a member of Kerr or if you have not been baptized. And prepare for our sermon series below:
