Ash Wednesday Service
7:00 p.m. Sanctuary
The season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. Lent is a time created to usher us into 40 days of reflection, repentance, and renewal. It comes from an old english word meaning ‘lengthen.’ For 40 days we are stretching time to focus on preparing the community for the fullness of Jesus.
As worshipers arrive they will enter a bright worship space. They will receive words of repentance and hope. As the service unfolds, we will move farther and farther into the Dark—where we will collectively spend the season of Lent. The service will conclude with receiving the ashes for all who wish. The ashes help us mark the beginning of our Lenten journey and remember that the life we hold is short and meaningful. We invite you to join us as we begin our Lenten journey together.
