Ash Wednesday

Lent, our annual time of preparation for Easter, begins on Ash Wednesday, March 1, 2017.

The journey begins that day with three worship opportunities:

  • 11:15 a.m. in the Sanctuary. Soup lunch served afterward in the Library.
  • 6:30 p.m. – a special family service in the Tree of Life Room.
  • 7:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary, with music led by the Chancel Choir

Ash Wednesday is a quiet day. It is a day of introspection and prayer. The imposition of ashes reminds us that we are not God, but then the liturgy turns to the table, where God accepts us nonetheless, and feeds us with the Bread of Life.
