Ash Wednesday is the start of the season of Lent. Lent is a season of spiritual preparation for Holy Week and Easter. It is a time for renewed commitment to our spiritual lives, and of looking into our hearts to see how God would have us amend our lives so that we may continue to follow on the Way of Love. We place ashes on the forehead as a reminder of our mortality, our dependence on God, and our commitment to the coming season of spiritual renewal. We have several ways for you to participate in Ash Wednesday:
- 6am-9am Ashes to Go with Rev. Robin and Pastor Marylee from the Methodist Church. Come to Fuller Park at the corner of Oak and Jefferson for imposition of ashes and brief individual prayer.
- Noon- An hour service of ashes, prayers, and communion
- 6pm- A service of ashes, prayers, and communion with contemplative music.
