Sunday, March 9 – Join us Sunday for our Lenten sermon series
Mar. 5 – Ash Wednesday Service Tonight @ 6pm in the Sanctuary (nursery available)
Why Do We Observe Ash Wednesday?
Ash Wednesday is a Christian holiday honored for well over ten centuries. The distinctive feature of an Ash Wednesday service is the imposition of ashes placed on the foreheads of worshipers as a reminder of our mortality and consistent need for turning back to God. “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
Despite its solemnity, however, Ash Wednesday is not intended to be a somber occasion. Rather, it marks the beginning of a season of anticipation. Together we acknowledge that we need a Savior. Together, we enter the Lenten season, preparing for His arrival on Easter.
