Ash Wednesday

Potluck Dinner at 6pm in the basement and Worship at 7pm in the Sanctuary

Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent, 40 days (plus Sundays, which is a time of fasting, repentance, prayer and self-control.  It is usually a time to avoid luxuries or rich food or bad habits.  It is also a good time to add something to strengthen your relationship with God, i.e. devotionals, Bible Study, or adding a spiritual practice. It gets its name from the in the imposition of ashes - that come from the burning of the palms from the Palm Sunday of the previous year.  You will usually hear the words “Repent and believe in the Gospel" or "Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” It is time to remember and reflect on what God has done for you and what you have done and could do better for God.
