Into the Garden: A Desert Pilgrimage

Lent 2024

The season of Lent, our time to prepare for Christ’s Resurrection through prayer, sacrifice, and acts of charity, is fast approaching. Many of us are looking for opportunities to pray more and immerse ourselves more deeply in Scripture and what the Passion of Christ means for us — especially in a season of infertility or loss. To help you along the path, we invite you to join the Springs in the Desert community as we gather once again for this year’s six-week installment in our Desert Pilgrimage virtual series: Into the Garden. It’s the fourth year of our weekly Lenten series, and we’re excited for this one! Each week we’ll be guided “into a garden” found in Scripture (there are more of them than you might realize!) with a reflection from one of our amazing team members or contributors, and time for small group sharing, community-building, and prayer.

Women at the Well Prayer Group

Zoom | Wednesdays at 8pm ET [No meetings during Lent]

Do you need a little spiritual “boost” in the middle of your week? Are you looking for some fellowship with others on the path of infertility and loss? We’re here for you! In an effort to create a deeper sense of community, help women from around the country (and the world) to get to know each other, and just have some time together with the Lord, we’re launching the virtual Women at the Well Prayer Group! We’ll meet every Wednesday at 8pm Eastern, starting May 10, 2023 through May 1, 2024. We’re keeping it casual: drop in when you can or when you need some extra support or prayer. There are no sign-ups, no “small group” structure or break outs; just time to pray, share, and be encouraged. We’ll use Johnette Benkovic-Williams’ book Grace-Filled Moments as a guide, but you don’t need to own the book to join. We hope to “see you at the Well!” Click to join: Wednesdays at 8pm ET.

PLEASE NOTE that there will be no Wednesday prayer group meetings during Lent (2–14 through 3/27). We will be back 4/3 for a time of prayer and fellowship. God bless you!
