Ash Wednesday Service
Wednesday March 1
at 7:30 pm
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. Lent is a time when Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline.
Ash Wednesday emphasizes two themes: our sinfulness before God and our human mortality.
During the Ash Wednesday services, the minister will lightly rub the sign of the cross with ashes onto the foreheads of worshipers. The use of ashes as a sign of mortality and repentance has a long history in Jewish and Christian worship. Historically, ashes signified purification and sorrow for sins.
This service includes hymns, special music by the choir, and offering ashes, to place on the foreheads of participants.
