Dear Women of ECC,
We are at the beginning of the Lenten season. Lenten practices may include adding something instead of taking something away, or possibly both. No matter how you choose to celebrate Lent, with increased prayer, daily Scripture readings or additional service, we hope that you are connecting more closely with God and the gift of His Son.
