Ash Wednesday is not a holiday, really, or just the day after Fat Tuesday. It is a wake up call. It confronts us with our mortality and our sinfulness. To heed this call is not to despair, but to repent and turn to God. Ash Wednesday begins the 40 day season of Lent which is to be a season of reflection and preparation for the death and resurrection of Jesus. 

The journey begins with us facing our brokenness and our deep need for God’s healing. 

Lent is a time of repentance, of considering Christ’s sufferings and rethinking how we are called to take up our own crosses. Some of us give up things like chocolate or television during this season as a sort of fasting and others try to integrate something new into their lives, like visiting and serving folks in need, exercising, or praying. It is a good season to rethink how we live and to let some things go, or maybe even to develop some new holy habits. 

We’ll gather for worship at 7pm on February 14th @ the church building.

Children are more than welcome to participate in worship but there will only be childcare for children ages 4 and under. RSVP for childcare below with child(ren)’s name(s) by February 7th.
