The season of Lent begins February 26. Our family-friendly Ash Wednesday service will be at 6:15 p.m. in the sanctuary with Kate Fields offering the reflection. Chapel Choir will join for the entire service; God’s Flock, Joyful Noise Singers, and Music Makers choirs will join at 6:40 p.m. for a gathering moment and to receive ashes. Ash Wednesday begins our Lenten journey of 40 weekdays until the eve of Easter. Sundays are not included in the 40 days because Sundays are “little Easter” celebrations.

A part of the Ash Wednesday service is having a cross of ashes imposed on your forehead. The ashes remind us of our mortality and of our sin, and remind us of God’s forgiveness and love.

Save the date and make plans to join us on Wednesday, February 26.
