Lent Community Groups Wrap-Up

Posted: 04/04/2024
“Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!”
This past Lent, more of us than ever before—over 350 people!—joined together to bless the Lord by participating in a Lent community group. Thirty groups, representing a wide range of ages and locations throughout Baton Rouge, met weekly for study, prayer and praise. Leaders and participants alike reported how much more fruitful the 2024 Lyrics for His Life Lent Guide proved to be when shared with friends, both old and new. We heard from so many of you–from as simple as,“Our group is on fire!,” to tender stories about the Lord working through groups to answer specific prayers. We’d like to especially thank all the leaders, who devoted their personal time to training, preparation, and prayer for the study. Guess what? The fun doesn’t have to stop, and there’s room for more to join! Several groups plan to continue meeting or simply gather periodically for fellowship throughout the rest of the spring and summer. If you’re interested in learning more about community groups, or want ideas for how your group can continue on, simply contact Kelly Wood (
