Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday, March 6th marks the beginning of the season of Lent in the Church.  Lent is the 40 days before Easter (not counting the 6 Sundays) when we humble ourselves, repent of our sins, and follow Jesus to the Cross through acts of love and self-denial that benefit others.
This year, instead of having a service inside the walls of the church (which would only benefit a few of our members who attend), we will offer “Drive Thru Ashes,” from 7:00 am to 9:00 am in an attempt to offer the love and grace of Christ to our community.  Ashes will be offered outside in the driveway of the church to anyone who wishes to receive ashes on their forehead or hand, as a symbol of repentance and an identification with Christ.  Please be sure to get up early and come, as well as invite friends, family and neighbors to receive ashes on their way to work, school, or the busyness of the day.
