The 40-day season of Lent begins on February 10 with a special Vesper Service at 7pm in the sanctuary. Childcare will be provided. Join us for a simple service of scripture readings, prayer, meditation, the imposition of ashes, and the celebration of the Sacrament of Holy Communion.
The ancient practice of imposing ashes on the foreheads of the faithful reminds us of our mortality and our need for grace with the words “earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust” from the liturgy for Christian burial—words that will someday be spoken over us all. The service on Ash Wednesday begins the Lenten journey that takes us to Easter’s joy.
