Ash Wednesday

February 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Prepare your hearts and minds for the Season of Lent, starting with Ash Wednesday.

We will have a full liturgy worship service with Holy Communion, Wednesday, February 14 at 7:00 p.m.

The worship service will also be livestreamed to our YouTube Channel.

Lent begins with a solemn call to fasting and repentance as we begin our journey to the baptismal waters of Easter.  As we hear in the Gospel reading, now is the acceptable time to return to the Lord.  During Lent the people of God will reflect on the meaning of their baptism into Christ’s death and resurrection.  The sign of ashes suggest our human mortality and frailty.  What seems like an ending is really an invitation to make each day a new beginning, in which we are washed in God’s mercy and forgiveness.  With the cross on our brow, we long for the spiritual renewal that flows from the springtime Easter feast to come.  

Dust you are and to dust you will return.
Genesis 3:19
