Join us as we look ahead to the coming Lent season by remembering our creation from the dust and give thanks for the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ. Rev. Allison Gossett will lead us in a time of worship together.
The placing of the ashes on our foreheads is an outward sign of our faith and a way of saying we «repent, and believe in the Gospel» (Mark 1:15). The ashes used are from the palm leaves used in last year's Palm Sunday services. Having the ashes placed on one's forehead is optional.
Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent and marks the beginning of 40 days of reflection and penance. In the Bible, sprinkling oneself with ashes was traditionally a sign of one's sorrow for having committed sins. In the Christian tradition, Ash Wednesday marks the preparation to understand the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Some people choose to partake in a fast starting Ash Wednesday to cut out something that acts as a distraction from God.
Childcare is available for 3 and under.
