Ash Wednesday Service

February 26, 2020 6:45 – 7:45pm

Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent and we focus on the finality of ashes – so we can, through the course of the Lenten season discover how God offers us hope in what seems to be the finality of death. This year we will offer a self-guided journey of prayer and contemplation that will culminate with the imposition of ashes. Come anytime between 6:45 and 7:45 to participate.
