This first day of Lent, the 40 days before Easter,
begins this year on February 14.
Ashes are traditionally a sign of repentance – of our desire to turn away from sin and brokenness in all its forms and return to God.
There will be two opportunities to receive ashes.
From 6:30am to 7:30am Pastor Lori will be in the sanctuary and will offer ashes to anyone who desires them.
At 7:30pm there will be a worship service featuring scripture, prayer, choral music, silence for reflection and the imposition of ashes. Before this service, at 6:30pm, there will be a simple supper. Different types of soup and rolls, plus beverage will be provided. We ask everyone who plans to attend to bring either a salad item or a dessert to share.
