Ash Wednesday: 2 worship options

Ash Wednesday begins a season of 40 days of reflection and fasting for some Christians, as an opportunity to strengthen one’s faith in preparation for Easter. For centuries, Christians have been marked with a cross of ashes on the forehead as a reminder of humanity’s mortality and an invitation to receive God's forgiveness.

2-3 PM in the Sanctuary - Imposition of Ashes

7PM in the Sanctuary - We begin Lent with our Ash Wednesday service.  We will gather at the back of the sanctuary as people of God seeking a time of confession  We will be reminded in the receiving of the ashes that in living and dying we belong to God.
