Lent & Easter 2019

Join us at FUMC Hot Springs as we venture on a Lenten journey with faith that can survive the cross.  Starting with the distribution of ash during Ash Wednesday services, the Methodist church will enter a time of reflection, prayer, and preparation for the coming of Easter.  The journey is long, but we will not be alone.

Download the Lenten Devotional Book written by our pastors here.  Physical copies can be picked up at the Welcome Centers of the Sanctuary and Christian Life Center.
