Ash Wednesday

Lent begins with Ash Wednesday, which this year is February 26.

Our Ash Wednesday service will be at 7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary. This is a traditional style worship service and can be a special spiritual experience of worship for persons of any worship style preference. Plan to start Lent well by coming to worship on Ash Wednesday. Communion will be celebrated at the communion rail. The imposition of ashes will be offered for those who would like to receive it. (The use of ashes as a sign of mortality and repentance has a long history in Jewish and Christian worship. The act of ashes being marked on the forehead in the shape of the cross is a powerful way of participating in the call to repentance and reconciliation.)
