Ash Wednesday Service

March 2 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. It occurs forty days before Easter, not including six Sundays (which are considered feast days), and recalls Jesus’s forty days in the wilderness, itself mirroring the Israelites’ forty years in the desert. During this service, the pastor marks those who attend with ashes as a reminder that “we are dust, and to dust we shall return.”
