Lent at Crosstown

This year we are exploring the idea of lament during Lent as we prepare for Easter. Sunday Lent services start March 20th. There are special services to note, further contemplation on the topic in our blog posts, and music to help immerse in this spiritual practice. Our series Scripture passage comes from Matthew 27.

Matthew 27:45-56

Lent Lament Blog

This year we are exploring Lent through the less traditional lens of lament. Our passage of focus will be Matthew 27:45-56. Each week we will reflect on a different part of this passage, soak up a Lament song from Porter's Gate, and cry out with a prayer Psalm from David. 

Giving Drive for Food Shelf

During this time the church observes a season of generosity, simplicity, and repentance. This year's drive is supporting the Good in the 'Hood food shelf at Crosstown by adding cleaning items to the distribution. See our flier or shopping list for details.

Lament Music

We have collected two playlists for you. The first is songs of lament that parallel our sermon series and blog posts. These songs are also available on our YouTube playlist.
The second list is a compilation of various artists to help you center on Good Friday in preparation to celebrate His resurrection.
