Faces of Faith
Midweek @FBC during Lent
During Lent, we will gather in the chapel each Wednesday night at 6:20pm to learn more about each other and more about our faith.
Each week several church members will share their stories of how they have experienced God in their lives. We will all be challenged to “clothe ourselves” with the traits of Colossians 3:12: compassion, kindness, humility, patience and endurance. Through learning more about those who make up our congregation, we will learn more about who God is calling us to be.

This Lenten season at First Baptist Greensboro, instead of only giving things up we’re putting things on. In the epistle of Colossians, God’s holy and beloved are urged, “Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. Bear with one another, and if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.” (Colossians 3:12-14)
The season of Lent is a season of repentance and renewal in preparation for Easter. For 40 days (plus Sundays), Christians spend time considering the love of God in Christ, and how we can more fully follow in the way of Jesus. This year, we’re considering the traits listed in Colossians as the marks of this “new life of love” to which God has called us through the resurrection of Christ. Each Sunday in worship, we will focus on a different theme and how we can take it on in our own lives. We hope you will be with us throughout the season of Lent as we seek to clothe ourselves with love.
