Ash Wednesday – March 1
“By the sweat of your face you shall eat your bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; you are dust and to dust you shall return.” Gen. 3:19
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. We take on the ashes made from the burnt palm fronds from last Palm Sunday to confess our own mortality and our need of Christ.
Ash Wednesday services: Noon and 6:45 PM
For those who cannot receive ashes until the end of the day or who cannot be present at a service:
Ashes, Blessing and Coffee: 7:00-8:00 AM
Forest Ave. Steps Drive up, receive the imposition of ashes and a blessing from Pastor Larry and Pastor Drew, and a cup of coffee to go. This is an opportunity to silently offer a witness to your faith all day long Ash Wednesday. You won’t even have to get out of your car!
