Ash Wednesday Service

February 14, 2018

12:00pm – 12:30pm

This coming Wednesday, from 12:00-12:30 p.m. in our sanctuary, I invite you to gather with us to begin our Lenten journey together with an Ash Wednesday Prayer Service. It is called Ash Wednesday because throughout the history of God's people, anointing with ashes has been a public sign of humility and repentance before God and one another (Jonah 3:6, Daniel 9:3, Matt 11:21). At this service, we will pray together and afterward those who desire will have the opportunity to have ashes placed upon their foreheads as a reminder of our own mortality and the effects of sin that remains in us. We gather on this Ash Wednesday to honestly face and acknowledge our brokenness and need, but to do so in the knowledge and hope of the overwhelming and pardoning love of Jesus' cross and resurrection.
