Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday

The Lenten season begins with Ash Wednesday, February 26, 2020. There are three Eucharist services that day and an opportunity to share the grace of this special occasion in our neighborhood. Our services include the imposition of ashes, an ancient custom that symbolizes penitence. The reminder that “we are dust” turns our attention to the creative power of God and God’s ability to heal the brokenness in our lives. Please join us in worship on Ash Wednesday as we begin the season of preparation for the great joy of Easter.
