Ash Wednesday Services

Join us on Wednesday February 14 at your choice of three different times, 7:00 am, 12:00 noon, or 7:00 pm, for an Ash Wednesday Worship Service.

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a season of fasting and prayer. Ash Wednesday takes place 46 days before Easter Sunday and comes from the ancient Jewish tradition of penance and fasting. The practice includes the wearing of ashes on the head. The ashes symbolize the dust from which God made us. During the service, the minister will apply the ashes to each person’s forehead as he speaks the words: “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” (Genesis 3:19) Typically, the ashes used in our services are the ashes created from the palm branches waved by our children during services on Palm Sunday the previous year.
