Lent 2021 Service Plan – Into His Death and Resurrection – Holy Baptism

As a part of our multiyear plan here at Steadfast, this year our Lenten theme will be centered around the fourth chief part of the Catechism, Holy Baptism. As usual, this service plan will be accompanied by a daily devotional booklet, which should be released in late-January or early February.
