Lent starts today. The word “lent” comes from the old-English word for “Spring.” Lent is the 40 days in the traditional church calendar that precede and anticipate Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday (aka Easter). Practicing lent is not biblically mandated. It is one way to be formed by the cross. The world is trying to form us into its pattern (Romans 12:1-2) and lent is a particular season to push against the current and be formed by Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. It is a season to give up distractions from Christ and focus on Christ. Click on the button below to read more about it as well as how to get started.


Women’s Study starts back up soon. They will meet every Tuesday @ 7pm at the Commons and on Zoom for 6-7 weeks straight beginning in March. They will be doing a study on Hebrews 11 by Trillia Newbell called, “A Great Cloud of Witnesses.” Throughout Scripture we find countless stories of God’s faithfulness—we also find countless stories of the people who remained faithful to Him. To strengthen and deepen your own faith, enter the stories of God’s imperfect yet faithful people, such as Rahab, Enoch, Gideon, Sarah, and many more whose faiths withstood the tests of their days. For more information, contact Chelsea Andres.

MARCH 19 or 20


Every woman wants to feel fulfilled. Yet the things we pursue to give our lives meaning often leave us feeling empty instead. At re:garding HIM you will explore how living according to God‘s design gives us true and joyful purpose.

This year there are two identical options from which you can choose:

  • Friday, March 19, 7:00-9:30pm
  • Saturday, March 20, 9:00-11:30am

Both events are held at Christ The Word Church (3100 Murd Rd, Sylvania, OH). For more information about the event, contact Chelsea Andres or click on one of the buttons below.



We have been preaching through the Book of Daniel. It is helpful to remind ourselves that the stories in the Bible are not fiction but actual events that happened in history. This has been confirmed countless times over the course of thousands of years. Archeologists has unearthed some pretty fascinating evidences that have confirmed certain biblical events. One of these artifacts is called the Cylinder of Nabonidus, which gives evidence to the consistency of the Book of Daniel with what we know about Babylonian history. Click on the picture above or button below to read about this artifact and its significance.
