Ash Wednesday Service - February 17 at 7:00 p.m.

We enter the season of Lent on Wednesday, February 17. Join our pastors online for our Ash Wednesday worship service on February 17 at 7:00 p.m. on Zoom.

In accordance with public health guidelines, ashes will not be administered in person, however, during our online worship service you may self-administer ashes.

Feel free to pick up ashes outside the front door of the church. Ashes are available in a green cooler marked 'Ash Wednesday'. Please take only one small bag of ashes per family. Deacon Wes created a video about ashes pick-up to guide you further. Click here to view the video.

As a community, let us enter this holy time with renewed reverence, courage, and hope.

For our Ash Wednesday worship, we will use the same Zoom link and password as for Sunday worship.
