Praying On The Way to Easter

with CD on the Go!CD on the Go! Small

Easter is the first weekend of April and around the world Christians prepare for Easter starting 40-days out with the observance called Lent. This year we want to invite everyone during those 40 days to pray together on our way to Easter.

Starting February 17th, we’re going to drop a daily devotional that will end with prompts for how you might pray together with the whole church. That daily devotional will be both written AND there will be a short audio version that you can just listen to and pray along with as you drive, or go on a walk, or as you’re doing the dishes, etc.

We’ll be posting this new 7-day-a-week prayer invitation on our Facebook page and on Instagram--so be sure to like us on those social media platforms. We’ll also be distributing it through the Connect Devotional email list.

If you’re already getting the Connect Devotional, you’ll get that automatically. The daily email will include the link that you can click on in order to listen to CD on the Go and both the written devotional, too. If you’re not yet getting the Connect Devotional, you can be added to the email distribution list by

COVID has taken so many things away from all of us, we want to invite you to join with our larger community to unite in praying together on our way to Easter.
