Ash Wednesday Worship Feb 14


Ash Wednesday Worship

Wednesday, February 14 | 7:00pm | Sanctuary

All ages are invited to join us as we begin our Lenten Journey toward Holy Week and Easter: From Lovers to Fools: Making Sense of the Lenten Journey. We celebrate the sacrament of communion and give you an opportunity to have ashes (last year’s palms) placed on your forehead or on the back of your hand. The choir sings and we hear Jesus’ words about being more faithful as recorded in Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21. We will also light our Lenten candles to signify all the ways that we go From Lovers to Fools with our eyes, ears, hands, voice, heart, head and feet. Each time we worship during Lent, we will extinguish one candle as we get closer to the darkness of Good Friday. We will light all the candles again on Easter morning, as nothing can extinguish God’s light or love. This gift is to be experienced with our whole selves and shared with others abundantly.
