Ash Wednesday Service
February 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent, a 40 day period of preparation and devotion leading up to Easter. For hundreds of years, Christians have gathered together on the Wednesday before the first Sunday of Lent to deal with their sin. To name it, to confess it, to mourn and cry over it. And after acknowledging the sin, to plead with God for mercy and forgiveness, and to recognize that they are nothing without God.
The Ash Wednesday service is a quiet, contemplative gathering to reflect and examine the effects our sin has on our hearts, on our lives, and on the world around us. If Lent represents the long road of Jesus and His disciples to the cross, the grave, and ultimately, the joy of Easter morning, then Ash Wednesday is the first step.
Please join us for the Ash Wednesday service on February 22 at 7 PM in the Brookside Campus Worship Center. Doors open at 6:30 PM.
No childcare is provided for this service.
