40 Cans for 40 Days

During the season of Lent, we commemorate both the Israelite's 40 years and Jesus' 40 days in the wilderness as we prepare for the coming of Resurrection Sunday. 


Traditionally, people observe this time of preparation by fasting or abstaining from certain activities, foods, or habits.  


We would like to invite you to partner with us in one of AHUMC's Lenten practices. As you go through 40 days of preparation, we’d hope you will join us in prayer for the Hope Center. We also ask that you will consider donating a can of food for each of the 40 days of Lent.  


Thank you for your prayers and support!
