Ash Wednesday Service

Feb 14 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Creating ashes for the service

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a season of reflection that leads up to Easter. It is traditional to give something up for Lent, often something you enjoy. However, there is a bigger picture. What if we asked help in giving up something that holds us back in our Christian life — anger, resentment, memories of past injuries or failures? You can probably think of more examples.

You will be invited to write something that you want to give up/eliminate/put aside from your life on a small pieces of paper, which we will bring forward and place in a small, fireproof bowl.

Pastor William will burn the papers, and will use the resulting ashes for the Imposition of Ashes.
