This Lent, Pastor Candy invites you to deepen your faith by discovering the faithful witness of those who have come before us in faith. How can you do that? By joining in “Lent Madness!” Lent Madness is a annual program which features 32 saints in a single-elimination tournament bracket. Lent Madness participants read the stories of these saints, vote online in each daily matchup, and follow the tournament all the way to Holy Week’s “Golden Halo” finale. It’s a way to deepen your faith but also have some fun, as Lent Madness is for Christians who want to take their faith — but not themselves — too seriously.
Lent Madness is a free resource. Visit the website to learn more about the program and to sign up for regular emails throughout the Lenten season. To participate in Wesley Church’s edition of Lent Madness, please contact Pastor Candy. You’ll receive a bracket and a “Saintly Scorecard” (a booklet which includes background information on each of the 32 saints). Fill out your bracket with your predictions and return it to Pastor Candy by Tuesday February 21. The individual with the winning bracket will receive a special prize!
