Loma Essex Ministry
The UMW began a "Loma Essex Ministry" to support our college students for which Loma had a great concern. It was Loma's wish to keep in touch with these students from our church. Please inform us of any change in your student's mailing address or if you have a freshman student to add to the list by calling the church office at 870-946-2328 or emailing the church at email@example.com.
We ask for your prayers that this ministry will be the blessing we intend and we thank you for your support.
The liturgical season of Lent lasts for 40 weekdays in remembrance of the 40 days and nights that Christ spent fasting in the desert. Lent is a time of penance, so that the faithful may share in the joys of Easter Sunday with purity of heart.
Easter celebrates the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, while Lent is a time of preparation for Holy Week. Holy Week recalls the events preceding and during the crucifixion.
The color for the liturgical season of Lent is purple.
