Wednesday, March 147:30pm worship service in the sanctuary
An evening of reflection and beautiful music.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. Lent is a time when many Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline. During the Ash Wednesday service, we will enjoy beautiful music, share in communion, and our minister will lightly rub the sign of the cross with ashes onto the foreheads of worshipers. The use of ashes as a sign of mortality and repentance has a long history in Jewish and Christian worship. Historically, ashes signified purification and sorrow for sins.
