Ash Wednesday Service
February 22, 2023 @ 6:30 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, confess it, mourn over it, plead with God for mercy and forgiveness, and recognize our great need for God.
The Ash Wednesday service is a contemplative gathering of prayer and song to reflect on and examine the effects sin has on our hearts, our lives, and 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.
