JOIN US FOR ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICE
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6, 2019
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. Ash Wednesday has two emphases: confronting our own mortality and confessing our sin before God in light of God’s redeeming love in Jesus Christ. We are to put aside our sins and failures of the past in the light of who we are yet to become by the grace of God.
Ultimately, we are to prepare for Easter by dying and rising with Christ for it is through Christ that God’s saving grace is demonstrated. During the Ash Wednesday evening service, the imposition of ashes on the forehead in the sign of the cross is offered to show an outward sign of our sorrow and repentance of sins.
Please come begin your journey of Lent by attending this service on Wednesday, March 6, 2019.
